Soothing, Softening Mediterranean Manicure Mitts

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton


5 sc = 2 inches; 8 rows = 3 inches 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 -- it takes two sides for each hand!)
With 3 strands of yarn held together, ch17.
Row 1:
Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (16 sc). Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
Rows 3-6: Rep row 2
Row 7: 2 sc into first sc, sc to end. Ch 1, turn. - 17 sc
Row 8: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 9: 2 sc into first sc, sc to end. Ch 1, turn. - 18 sc
Row 10: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 11: 2 sc into first sc, sc to end. Ch 1, turn. - 19 sc
Row 12: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 13: 2 sc into first sc, sc to end. Ch 1, turn. - 20 sc
Row 14: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn.
Repeat row 14 until piece measures 10 inches [25.5 cm].
Last Row:
Sc in each sc across, fasten off.

Place two pieces together, aligning the edges. With two strands of yarn and H8 hook, attach the pieces to each other with single crochet.

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.
