Crochet for the Cold

Blogged under Fiber Fun,Free Craft Projects by Tammy on Sunday 1 February 2009 at 8:04 am

I am so ready now for this latest cold snap. I made some fingerless gloves aka wrist warmers, so no more cold steering wheel on Monday when I head off for my early morning class! I got the pattern from here at Crochet Pattern Central. I altered the instructions just a tad, adding an extra row of double crochet at the end and doing some single crochet around the edges to finish them off a little, but the instructions are so easy! I highly recommend trying it. I plan to make a few more pair to give to family and friends.

I also have a new scarf I made by simply making a long rectangle of alternating single crochet and double crochet. I’m not into fringe, so didn’t add any. I used Lion Brand Homespun yard so it’s got some great texture going on. It was a little challenging to work with because it can snag, but I used a fairly large hook which helped some. If I make any more using Homespun yarn, I’m going to use an every larger needle, like at least a K size.

Bring on the cold now, baby! I’m so ready!

    Thanks Kenneth. I crochet mainly in the evenings while watching TV so that I don’t snack so much, so that’s helped give me extra crafting time. But, really, these were super easy to make, and with this new cold snap I had some incentive!
