When I was on Attic 24 sight I came across
these to die for fingerless mittens/wrist warmers......
here at Joules Catalogue
I knew right away that I wanted a pair.
Now I have seen them in stores,
made of lightweight yarn... or some unknown fibre.
But I new I could make these with the yarn I had in my stash.
I used one ball of Paton's sock yarn that knits up to stripes just like the picture. Cost $5.00 cdn
I used a 3.25mm crochet hook and a darning needle.
Yes just the look I was after!! You be the judge.
I started with of chain of 35. then continued with a
hdc half double crochet. I just couldn't stop there... As in Attic 24 I added on a bobble edging. This is done by 5dc in the same stitch followed by a sc st.
It's so easy to find instructions on the bobble stitch on line.
You see I start with a long tail that I can weave into themitten once the sewing is complete.
I sewed up the piece right sides together and stopped.
Left an opening for my thumb about 2" then continued sewing the remaining to the top.
I finished off the thumb opening with a sc stitch.
I know my hands/wrists will stay warm with these babies.
Don't you just love them..... They fit nicely over my jogging jacket.
Now you can make them longer or shorter your preference.
The same with the yarn. The next ones I'm going to try a
chunky yarn. Don't forget to match up your hook to the yarn.
Hmmm I wonder how many of my
grands and daughters will want these.....
Thanks for stopping by!
Love hearing from you.
