I decided to teach myself tunsian crochet. As initially, I only had a standard crochet hook, I made something small scale. The face scrubbers are a very soft cotton yarn worked in 16 st tunsian crochet or the afgan stitch. I worked a single stitch around.

The wristwarmers are worked on a double ended crochet hook so that I could work them in the round. Two different balls of wool yarn are used, olive and blue/green. Again I used an afgan stitch, but it is often called crochetknit when worked on a double hook. I had an interesting time figuring out how to make the thumb holes.

I ended up mixing the yarn strands on the second hand, so they coordinate instead of match. What looks like the warp and weft are reversed. I also edged them differently afterward. you can see that somewhat in this picture.
