Simple mesh gauntlets

March 31, 2010

Whilst trying out some mesh patterns for a project i’m working on I became inspired and whipped up these very simple gauntlets. They are made using a very simple crochet mesh pattern with only one increase line and finshed with a slight ruffle. Below is the pattern I came up with so you can try it out yourself.
