Beating the Pox

Sounds very 18th Century… Child has chicken pox and I’ve taken to the crotchet hook (it was either that or Sloe Gin, but pick your battles…) After a request from a kind friend, I’ve rustled up wrist-warmer-glove-type things which without the garish flowers do look a little like a woollen suit of armor, but whatever, they do the job. Pretty easy really:
-Chain as many stitches as it takes to go around your wrist plus a little bit;
-First row treble stitch across;
– Subsequent rows, double crotchet up to Peter-Pointer Knuckle, then decrease each row twice either side of the middle by two until you are paralell with all your knuckles;
– Treble crotchet across the top (looks pretty) then stitch up the sides remembering to leave a hole for your thumb;
– Fasten off then add one row of double crotchet around the thumb-hole (looks kinda tidy);
– Add garish adornments and weild a broad-sword with pride.
