Needed a break from my knitting - I was getting hand cramps suddenly. I think its the shorter needle tips I've been employing, so in future I'll try longer tips. For now though I need to whip up a couple of quick gifts, so back to crochet. I did a variation of my Mrs. Fitz Mini Mitts (v 1.0). These are the same except there is no thumbhole and I added a decorative scalloped edge. Very easy to make, comfortable to wear, and pretty to look at.
For the original pattern please see here . Below is where the hand picks up, along with the slight modifications.
Mrs. Fitz Wrist Warmers
If you are going to make your hand with a different color, cut your arm yarn now, leaving an 18 inch tail for seaming later. If all one color, don’t cut.
With RS facing, turn work ¼ turn clockwise and attach new yarn color in the upper right hand stitch.
Work 27 HDC evenly into this edge, turn.
Row 1 (WS) – ch 1, not skipping the first stitch, work HDC into the 3rd LIF for 26 sts, and work the last HDC as normal, turn. (27)
Row 2 (RS) – ch 1, HDC BLO (27)
Repeat rows 1 and 2 for a total of 3 times (that's how long I went but go shorter or longer as you like!)
At your last stitch, if you use the same yarn, turn your work and do scalloped edge as such:
* 3 HDC in same stitch, slip stitch in next*
or, if you are attaching new color, turn your work and add new yarn in first stitch, then *3HDC in next stitch, slip stitch in next*.
Weave in ends and stitch up seams.
