I’ve had to keep my latest craft project somewhat under wraps, as it was a birthday present for my friend. But as her birthday has been and gone and said craft project has been duely gifted, I can post about it here.
So, these are fingerless mittens, or wristwarmers if you prefer, and they were an absolute joy to make. They crochet up really fast, and although the thumb part was pretty tricky, and fiddly, I think they finish it off really nicely.
I’m really quite proud of the end result. I sewed on a few pearlescent beads I bought as an option for my snowflakes, which I think lifts the colour and definitely adds to the cuteness.
As usual I have learnt a lot; how to crochet in the round, for instance, and how to make a thumbhole. Mainly though, that I really should make my slipstiches tighter, as where I have stitched them together, like a seam, looks a bit loose and holey in parts.
All in all, however, I am pleased with how they have come out.
Credit goes to Bethany Sew-and-Sew for the lovely pattern, I shall be making more of these for sure.
