Glad you liked the glove pattern folks. Here are the loopy stitch instructions.
Make a chain that will go round your wrist and over your hand. In the bulky yarn it was ch 20 for me but I have been told I have wrists like sparrows legs.
Join your chain with a slip stitch and single crochet round it once. I hate marking the end of rows so I just used my cast on tail as an indicator of where I should be finishing.
This is the loopy stitch :
Wrap the yarn round the hook 7 times, hook through first chain in your circle, yarn over hook as usual then start taking the 7 yarn overs off the hook in pairs (sets of two stitches). The yarn goes over the hook again between each pair of stitches. The results is a thing like a humped back caterpillar. Single crochet back into it's roots, the same chain as you used to start it. Ignore all holes and odd looking things. They are called texture. Move onto the next chain and repeat.
You should end up with one caterpillar in each of your stitches. Your circle will now consist of very big stitches and it is into these that you single crochet for the next round.
Then you're off making caterpillars again.
See how that goes and I'll tell you more later. If it's as clear as mud I can post pics.
