GAUGE:
25 sts + 23 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.

m1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle.

Knit this new stitch through the back loop.

mb (make bobble) (K1, p1, k1, p1, k1) all in same stitch to make 5 stitches from one, then pass 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th sts, one at a time, over first stitch.

skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch – 1 st decreased.

sk2p Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over – 2 sts decreased.

NOTES:
NOTES 1.

Gloves are worked in rounds from the cuff to the fingers.

Stitches are worked separately in rounds for each finger and thumb.

2.

Pattern stitches, used when working the cuff and back of hand, are shown in row-by-row written instructions and in charts before the instructions for the Gloves begin.

Work from the written instructions or from the charts (or, refer to both!), whichever you prefer.

3.

The cuff is worked in the Leaf Cuff pattern.

The Flower Motif pattern is worked across the back of the hand at the same time as sts are increased on one side of the glove for the thumb gusset.

The thumb gusset uses increased stitches to create additional room in the Glove.

4.

The thumb sts are placed on a holder and the hand is worked for additional rounds before the sts are divided for fingers.

5.

The little finger is worked in rnds over 12 hand sts and 1 cast on st, on the opposite side of the Glove from the thumb sts.

The remaining 40 sts are placed on a holder for upper hand.

6.

The stitches for the ring, middle, and index fingers are placed back onto the needles, one finger at a time, and worked in rnds.

For some fingers, additional sts are picked up or cast on.

7.

Thumb sts are placed back onto needles and worked in rnds.

8.

Any gaps remaining between fingers will be closed when gloves are finished.
