Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is written using the afterthought thumb. The pattern is for one glove. Please repeat the instructions to make the second glove for the pair.
  • I used the long tail cast on when designing this pattern. Use whatever cast on method you are comfortable with.
  • This pattern is using Jennys Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off as a design feature and to help stop the rolling of the material. This is optional. You are free to use any bind off you are comfortable with, though it may effect the look of your project. For videos on this or any other bind off method consult YouTube or the Internet if needed.
  • Alternately you can use DPNs for this pattern. Please note stitch count per DPN is NOT included in his pattern.
  • If you need to increase the length of the arm add more rounds BEFORE round 16. If you need to increase the length of the hand add rounds AFTER round 34 and BEFORE round 43.
