R11-16: hdc in each ch to end, ch 2 turn, leave 10" tail to sew sides together.
Place wristlets in front of you, be sure to position thumb holes correctly before seaming together. Essentially you will flip one of the wristlets. this is an important step. I had to redo one of each my daughters, due to watching tv at the same time...haha.
Next use ribbons, or chain a length of contrasting Jiffy yarn (as seen in pic), I used a 21" length of chain for the lacing.
To finish off, sc in contrasting color evenly spaced around the top of the wristlet. For bottom, do the same, or as I did, evenly spaced around the bottom do this pattern: sc, picot, sc, picot.
Please do not sell these, use this pattern to give away as gifts and if you show them please place a link to the pattern on my blog! Thank you,
