Crotchet wristers

This one is for Deborah :)

Zion’s Herald and Wesleyan Journal, April 01, 1863
What can we do for the soldiers?

"You may like to know what was Hattie’s offering. Though only seven years old, she had learned to crotchet quickly and well, and now it was turned to a good account. Her mother, very kindly, gave her some woolen yarn, and a little help in making two pair of warm mittens and wristers. This was a great piece of work for Hattie, and all the little girl accomplished for some time after." 

"crotchet" as spelled in the article - crochet
