Which actually makes my project this week perfectly timed! As I mentioned last week, I haven't been able to get any good pictures because of the fading daylight during the week, but I finally was able to get some pictures in the daylight! So anyway, here it is:
Crochet Hand Warmers
Seriously, these are the easiest thing I've ever crocheted, besides a chain. If you can single crochet, you can make these! I used yarn I already had around. All I did was start with a chain of 30 which is what fits around my wrist and hand, then single crocheted back and forth, over and over and over (chain one at each end before you turn) until I had it as long as I wanted.
It ended up as a rectangle, with the short side being the part that goes around my wrist and the long side being the length of the warmer. I put the two long sides together, and measured where my thumb would fit through. Then, I joined the sides with a stitch all the way up and when I got to the opening for my thumb I just single stitched on one side for the length of the thumb opening, and then went back to joining the sides until the top. I went back and finished off the other raw side of the thumb hole with a single crochet as well. Turned it inside out to hide the joining stitch, and there's one down! Repeat and prepare for warmer hands!
(The heart picture was Handy Andy's idea, he's so...artsy.)
There you have it - if you're new to crocheting you should give this a try, and let me know if you do!
Thanks for stopping by!
