Also known as gauntlets or wristlets… These go by many different names. Either way I love them.

Last month Elisabeth from Just Crochet issued a challenge, to create a new pattern for a scarf, finger-less gloves or a pillow using a stitch I had never heard of- ch.sc. Here is the definition/explanation for the stitch- “Insert the hook into the stitch, yarn over hook and draw through a loop (2 loops on hook), yarn over hook and draw through a first loop on hook (2 loops on hook), yarn over hook and draw through 2 loops on hook (1 loop remains on hook)”

A stitch I’d never heard of or tried? I was intrigued so I signed up! Here is what I came up with!

You don’t actually have to do the left and right thumb holes differently, but I don’t like my seams lines (however well they fit into the pattern) to show if I can help it. The way this pattern is written the seam actually runs diagonal, but I like the extra step of making SURE it’s in the back by taking care where I put the thumb holes!

You can see that the hook size changes creates a fitting center, but leaves a nice soft (dare I say fluffy?) cuff and over knuckle area. It’s subtle, but lovely! I am really REALLY tickled with how they turned out. I wore them all day today and fell more in love with them. I’m more of a green girl, but thought the burnt orange showed the stitches better for pictures as well as it’s a lovely color!

      Agreed! being constrained to one stitch I wasn’t sure how I’d give it shape and uniqueness, I felt inspired in the end and love how they turned out!

    These are really cute. I’m bookmarking this because my girls would each love a pair of these. Not sure if I’m that ambitious but I may give it a try. Thanks!

    I know that stitch as the extended single crochet. I like it for the pattern and the looser stitch it creates. It isn’t as open as straight double crochet is so it creates a warmer garment.

    I like your green gloves better too. Bold colours are pretty but not my personal preference.

    I know this stitch as the single crochet foundation stitch….never thought about continuing on with it, but I LOVE IT! Will make single crochet projects go much faster! I make fingerless mitts for the gals I work with as we are located in a cold spot of our office building….this is going to be great fun! Thanks!
