Soothing, Softening Mediterranean Manicure Mitts

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton


12 sts x 22 rows (11 ridges) = 4 in [10 cm] in garter stitch When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

MITT (make 4)
With three strands together, cast on 16 sts
Rows 1-12: K
Row 13: Kfb, knit to end of row - 17 sts
Row 14: K
Rows 15-20: rep rows 13-14 - 20 sts at row 20
Rows 21-56: K
Row 57-62: K2, P2 to end
Bind off all stitches, weave in ends

Place two pieces together, aligning the edges. Attach them to each other either by sewing with a strand of the cotton, or by using a H8 hook, two strands of cotton and single crochet around the edge (shown).

Hand-Softening Treatment
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 large plastic bags
2 rubber bands of a size to fit comfortably around your wrist

Mix the salt and oil. Rub the mixture well into your hands as if washing them -- the salt is mildly abrasive and feels oh-so-good. Rinse your hands in cool water just enough to remove the salt, leaving the oil on your hands. Place a plastic bag over each hand and secure with a rubber band. Run tap water until it is hot and soak the mitts in the hot water until they are thoroughly wet. Remove the mitts from the water and squeeze to dry slightly. Pop your hands into the warm mitts and enjoy the wonderful feeling as the warmtht spreads through your hands. When the mitts are cool, remove them and the plastic bags as well. You'll find that there is very little oil left on your hands -- gently remove any remaining with a soft cloth or tissue.
