I’ve also been busy with my hook making these “almost-mock-Victorian-style” wristwarmers, they’re done in just basic double crochet, with a picot edging on top and bottom to give them a lacy effect. I added some brass-coloured buttons, which I took from an old skirt I no longer wear, hence doing my bit for the environment! (I think it’s called “Upcycling”!)

They are not strictly gloves as there is no thumbhole, but I like to think of them as “extra sleeves” – you can wear them under your jumper or jacket and pull them down over your hand when you’re cold and push or fold them back when you need to use your hands! The buttons give a degree of flexibility to the wearer.
