I love granny squares, and had to design fingerless gloves around this icon of the crochet culture.
These are made litterally working "around a granny square" (that's the title of the ebook I wrote about granny squares, and which includes this design), with warm fabric on the inside of the mitts, and a shaped thumb.
The mitts close around the wrist with 2 pretty buttons.
Pattern is richly illustrated with tons of pictures showing each step of the construction of the mitts, and detailed instructions.
A four-rounds Granny square measures 4" = 10 cm
Bonjour! I'm Sylvie Damey, french designer living in the french Alps. I learned to knit as a child. In 2004, the birth of my first daughter was the occasion for me to start publishing my own designs, learn to crochet, spin yarn...and even sew again. And, that's how ChezPlum started. My patterns have also been published in Knitty.com and the book "1000 hats" by Annie Modesitt.
