Hi, gang! I’m Twinkie Chan! In the spirit of the season and Elsie’s “Tricks and Treats,” we are going to crochet a fun pair of fingerless mummy mitts (so spooky AND so practical!). All we’re really doing is making 3 different rectangles – using basic hdc and dc stitches -- and sewing them together. What’s extra fun about this project is that there are so many color options for your... Continue »
