Halloween is almost upon us, time for dressing up and celebrating the day of the dead…….in style of course!!
I have designed these wrist gloves to go with my witches costume; well if one is going to be a witch…one shall be a glamorous one!!
The idea came when I was putting my costume together to wear on Halloween, to a party of course, not just around the house (well, I might), and I really struggled to find gloves that are not elbow long and made out of netting. I wanted to recreate the effect of spider web that can be found in the corners of old dark shades. And here they are!!
I have named them Morticia, in honour of Morticia Addams, the most fabulous witch I’ve ever seen !! For the yarn I have chosen the glorious Rowan Kidsilk Haze Eclipse which just adds the perfect amount of glitz and glamor.
Below is the written pattern for ‘Morticia’, I wanted to include a chart, but unfortunately it is not to be. I have purchased a very swanky crochet chart maker, and as much a I try, I just cannot make it work! So maybe one day, when I figure it out, the chart shall be made.
But for now my pretties…..enjoy the pattern and have a wicked Halloween!! HAHAHAHA
