Snood it be any better?! (sorry)

I’ve finished a project! Yes it was simple.Yes it was quick. But its finished… even the ends have been woven in!

In actuality, I’ve finished two projects because whilst I was crocheting I could see I would have enough yarn for  gloves or mittens. I opted for Wristers which I have made lots of times before (see here).  I did however tweak the pattern slightly, so that the ribbing on the cuffs was more pronounced I alternated front post double crochets and back post double crochets (US terms)

I’m rather pleased with how it’s all turned out turned out. I used a 10mm crochet hook and created a round of about 64 stitches. I then worked a spiral (like amigurumi) using double crochets (US terms) forming a tube til it was about arm length. I worked in a spiral as I’m really not keen on seems left when joining rounds and chaining up; others may not see it but I do. 🙂

The colours are really autumnal and I’m not convinced the photographs do the pieces justice. Also, lacking a more glamorous model I had to do the job myself. 🙂

Wristers

After I’ve finished mending the blanket I’m working on (hopefully it’ll all be finished tonight), I’ll be working on more fingerless gloves. Redheart have written a nice straightforward free pattern which produces gloves that fit most hands (wristers). I like that I can still use my phone while wearing them.

I first made a pair of these as part of a crochet crowd challenge and I wear them all the time. When it gets colder that may change but for autumnal weather these are great.

I want to have a go at making mittens soon… I’m sure I saw a nice pattern where the top folds back (still thinking about using phone!!!) 🙂
