Personal Work Notes on Lily Gloves CH0440
Lily Gloves is so named as I am employing some of the techniques from Lily Chin’s DVD: “Mosaic Crochet with Lily Chin“. However as I wrote in What is Mosaic Crochet, I don’t really feel that what she thought is what I think Mosaic Crochet really is. Nonetheless, her techniques were very interesting and useful. So I deployed some of that learning here.
It creates a fully reversible fabric. The fabric is dense and cushy without being rigid or inflexible. Quite a perfect fabric for making sturdy, warm, cushy gloves for winter!
I have no pattern or graph to share this time. It was worked off the cuff. But some short notes that may help:
- 2.5mm hook
- start with 32 foundationless sc
- inc 7 st for thumbs => 46st in the round
- 30R after thumb (also worked in the round)
