My next project was gloves. (Or hand warmers to be percise.)
Again, I didn't have a pattern, just made it up as I went along. I kept trying them on. Increasing & decreasing as I went along. I chained 6 stitches for the thumb hole, then when I had finished them, went back a crocheted a few rows around the whole for the thumb.
These are very quick & easy to make ( if you use a chunky wool) & are proving very popular. At his request, my husband had some in black & my daughter has requested a trip to the wool shop so she can choose some wool for me to make her a pair.
