First of all I decided to make some fingerless gloves - and found this perfect wristers pattern on Ravelry. I made one glove according to the pattern, using the crofters yarn, and this is how it came out...
I really like the way it works up into an uneven striped pattern. I decided to adapt the 2nd wrister to my own pattern - I made it slightly looser and longer, with double crochet instead of single crochet, so it would work up quicker and feel less tight. This is it:
The question now is, do I wear a mismatched pair or do the job correctly and make a matching pair? I suspect the answer is to leave them as they are as I've moved onto something else now and really can't bear repeating previous work - a slight problem I suppose when you're making a pair of anything...ho hum.
As I had plenty of yarn left over I had a go at a granny square, to see how that looked, and ended up with a very pleasing one-half of a cushion cover. I love the way this has self-patterned with no need to keep changing yarn.
