Tussah silk is produced by the larvae of a number of different species of wild silk moths. The color varies from light beige to amber, depending on the species of moth and the diet of the larvae. Tussah fibers are almost twice the diameter of white or cultivated silk, making tussah silk an excellent choice in situations where strength and resistance to abrasion are an advantage. These mitts are an example—their warmth and light support may help to ease the strain of handwork or long sessions at the computer. Nonetheless, they are elegant and would be perfect for a night on the town!

Yarn: Treenway Tussah, 100% silk yarn, 100 g (3.5 oz)/skein, 1 skein of Natural

Hook: Crochet hook, steel, size 4 (1.75 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge

Notions: Markers, split ring Tapestry needle Polyester stuffing, handful

Gauge: 13 hdc = 2 inches (5.1 cm), 3 V-sts = 1 inch (2.5 cm), 5 rnds hdc = 7/8 inch (2.2 cm), 4 rnds V-st = 1 inch (2.5 cm)

Skill Level: Easy.

I'm having trouble with the part where you have to "work the opposite side of the chain" when working between the fingers. How would I go about doing that? Thanks :)

Very nice pattern but Treenway Tussah 100g (3.5oz) skein does not give me the size of the silk. Treenway has a variety of sizes ot Tussah silk. Could it be possible to find out. May thanks. Gertrude T.

When you download PDF  you can see a bigger picture of item, takes time but can still check it out before printing it.

I'm brand new, here, and I was thinking the same thing.  It would be OK, if you could just click to enlarge.  It's impossible to tell anything about this picture.

Would love to see bigger pictures before I download as my bandwidth is very limited & expensive here in South Africa, so I have to be very careful not to waste on unnecessary downloads. So appreciate your free patterns, thank you!
