Flashback Friday: Sharqi
This design is what I did with a single motif of the cable I created for Harmattan, Levantera, and Nashi, modified and worked back and forth to create these gauntlet mitts. I made the little finger loop with a crocheted chain joined to the point of the gauntlet. This pattern is one I am pretty proud of, too. Dominic and Mariam modeled the larger and smaller size with me, and they wore theirs for a long time afterward. Mariam grew out of hers, but Dominic still wears his. They are great for when it is a little chilly, but not frigid, or a windy day, which is a lot of our year here. One of the people who made this pattern modified it to be barefoot sandals for her daughter!
