Fingerless Crochet Gloves
I was really happy with my first pair of fingerless Astra Gloves and made another pair.
Pattern Astra Gloves by Jana Whittle found in the book Crochet one Skein Wonders: 101 Projects from Crocheters around the World. A very easy to follow pattern with the included crochet chart/diagram.
Yarn One skein Rowan Kid Classic in brown #817 bear, 70% wool, 22% mohair, 8% nylon, 50 g/140 m – 1.76 ounces/153 yards. The other skein is of unknown origin. I think it is a wool-alpaca or wool camel blend of some sort in orange.
Hook 3 mm US: 2/C
Level Easy for beginner crocheter
A great accessory for chilly but not too cold days outside. The orange color works fine with my autumn colored outfit. These gloves are a perfect gift for a friend or treat for yourself.
