I Will Wear Lace
As I approach an older age, I will wear lace, lace, lace.
No, not just the weathered and beige,
all kinds and colors and styles;
even the funny ones that bring on big smiles!

I will wear it as much and as often as I can,
some made by machine and some made by hand.
While making my outer shell look gentle and refined,
it is covering the flaws of old age and time.

Soap Ingredient Information

Fingerless Gloves/Cuffs

Fingerless Gloves/Cuff Pattern
Made with hand spun yarn and manufactured yarn.

Using hand spun lumpy/bumpy yarn, (I used my kid mohair yarn), Chain 16 stitches with size G crochet hook, and single crochet in the 3rd from the hook making a double crochet.  Double crochet in the back of each stitch along the chain.  You should have 14 stitches all together, counting the chain at the beginning of the row.  Continue in this manner until the piece you have is 6 inches long or long enough to go around your wrist comfortably.   Slip stitch the last and the first rows together making the cuff.  On one end of the cuff, single crochet around the edge.  Evenly space 7 chain 6 single crochet loops followed by a single crochet.  In each of these loops, single crochet 10 stitches.  Just above these loops, make 6 more with a chain of 8.  Single crochet 8 stitches, chain 3, and single crochet 8 more stitches in each of the chains.  Bind off

With manufactured mohair yarn, (I used Angel which is mohair and silk), cast on 60 stitches onto size 6 knitting needles, using 2 extra strands.  Knit 2 rows.  Purl one row.  This is the top of the cuff since it has the extra support from the extra strands of thread and the extra knitted row.  Continue in the stockinette stitch pattern until your piece measures 5 inches.  Bind off.  Stitch the side seam up.  This side seam may be left unstitched between the 1/2 inch mark and the 2 mark of the seam if you want to extend the thumb out.  I would suggest that the hole be single crocheted around for extra support.  Stitch this part into the cuff approximately 1/2 down on the inside of the cuff.
