A few blog posts ago I mentioned the adorable wristlets featured in Mollie Makes issue #10 designed by Monika Siwak. Here are the objects of desire.
Well I have now managed to make a version for myself. The original pattern called for #50 crochet cotton thread - not easy to get hold off and very fine and labour-intensive! My version of the wristlets is made using #10 thread, so although the final wristlets aren't as fine and dainty as Monika's, I think they still look pretty damn good.
Obviously I made them yellow and pink! I changed the lacy frilly bit - mine has more 'petals' and I didn't do a picot edging.
It took quite a number of attempts to get it right but I am pleased with the finished results - well worth the effort.
