I used this free pattern. It took a bit of translating and I had to frog it four times before getting it right. THis is the first one, the second one is only half done. I double stranded for the final row.

It was my, lets see, fourthi(sh) crochet project.

Looks very good. Smiley

What weight yarn did you use? I have trouble with garnstudio patterns due to both the poor English and also no mention of what weight their chosen yarn is. Makes it difficult.

Wow, very pretty. I think I might try my hand at making a pair too. Maybe I can make a better pattern translation... or figure out my own mock-pattern.

I went to get the pattern and I see what you mean!  And I know I am going to forget it is in British terms!  But I want them so I will persevere!

The Safran is a DK weight so that is what I used. I checked the length of the starting chain and it fit around my wrist so I went for it.

I've finished the second one but haven't worked out how to take a pic of both yet Smiley
