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. 🙂
