Onefellswoop Fingerless Flexmitts
These stretchy, 100% 'Bosnian' (slip stitch) mitts hug the hands like those “Isotoners” my Mom used to wear. The snug fit is due partly to the slip stitch fabric and partly to the elastic content of the sock yarn.
They’re called “OneFellSwoop” because everything is worked as you go: The last slip stitch row is also the seam. The only stitches used are chain stitches and slip stitches. No edging is necessary.
When older kids try these on they say, "Hey, cool! I like how these feel." And then they get back to texting and don't want to take them off.
After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):
- How to create a fashion fabric with slip stitches
- An easy way to create super-stretchy crochet
- How your own natural gauge (“the crocheter’s hand”) compares to standard gauges
- How to “crochet with spaghetti”—that’s how it might feel to use a big crochet hook with this super-stretchy yarn!
