This is very cool! Is the main part crocheted over something to give it shape? Or are the hands clipped together with a press stud or something similar?  You have it ups as arm or neck ware, how big is it, could you take a photo of it on your neck perhaps?

Thank you!

I added its dimensions 21" x 0.75" /53.34 cm x 1.9 cm /31.2g
I guess it could been crocheted over  wire, but
I found it easier to just thread wire through the finished piece.

I show it on the mannequin's neck because I'm unable to get a picture of it on mine.
Appreciate your comments-- I'd forgotten to include the dimensions.

Thanks for adding that! Now you have the pattern up I get how you did it. I somehow got it in my head that it was wrapped around a plastic arm Roll Eyes, and just couldn't see it fitting on a neck.
