I wanted a pair I could use and not worry about if they got messed up, like when working outside when it is cold. I used some leftover yarn from another project I made a few years back. The yarn was a wool blend so I decided to make them a bit large and felt them. I knew that this particular yarn felts better and better with subsequent washings which means it will stand up to hard work.
I used an "F" hook and chained a little larger than my wrist...about 28. Then I worked every row as hdc. I finished off the edges in sc. The bobble edge is just *sl, dc* repeat around. The picot is *ss, ch 3, skip 1* repeat all the way around.
Here they are before felting. Vibrant stripes with a fake bobble at the wrist and picot at the knuckles.
Now, If you want a true stripe pattern with a real bobble edge, complete with picture tutorial, check out attic24.
