Posted by Lianka Azulay on

Crocodile Stitch Mini Scale Gloves: a One-Skein Wonder Project

 

November is here and most crocheters I know are setting into Holiday gifts production mode. Whether you are a planner or a procrastinator, these gloves should be in your arsenal of quick projects. “I can make a pair of these in one hour”, says Judy Iriana, follower of our Bonita Patterns CALs on Facebook. Last time I checked, she had made five pairs already!

This is Judy Irina’s first pair, made with Bonita Yarns Dream Baby in Grey Degrade.
