Deirdre's Kerchief and Summer Mitts
Designed for Ficstitches Yarns Spring 2016 Crochet Kit Club.
“You don’t know what’s hiding in the brush,” her great aunt had told her sternly as Deirdre pulled on the hook-stitched mitts. Great Aunt Clary tied a stitched kerchief, still smelling of wool oil, around Deirdre’s neck and shoulders. “No fool ever died from being cautious.”
- Excerpt from The Soldier’s Stitch by C. Jane Reid
Lacy fingerless mitts and kerchief are both worked in the same pattern of V-stitches from different angles, creating an airy fabric with plenty of stretch. Perfect for life on the island or a cool summer evening. Patterns for both projects are included along with stitch diagrams and alternative design ideas.
