Worsted Weight Yarn in 2 Colors (Caron Simply Soft is suggested)
Size G6 – 4 mm hook or size needed to obtain gauge
110 yards Main Color
40 yards Accent Color
7 inches around wristband unstretched
7 inches from bottom to top
ch = chain
sk = skip
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet
blo = back loops only
inc = increase
dec = decrease
Row 1: sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and in each ch until the end. (17)
Rows 2-16: ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. (17)
Finished square should measure 4 inches X 4 inches (10 cm X 10 cm).
The wristband of the glove is worked in rows. The band is then slip stitched together to form a circle and the rest of the glove is worked in rounds.
The pattern on the gloves is the same on the front and the back so there is no need for separate instructions for the left and right glove. Both gloves have the same thumbhole placement.
Color Changes: When you have 2 loops of your hook from the last dc of the current color, draw up a loop from the new color to pull through the 2 loops and finish the dc, then sl st to the next square and complete it as normal with the new color.
Tapestry Crochet: To ensure straight lines and a clear pattern, work in the blo for the patterned rounds. Always carry your unused yarn along with you by holding it on top of the stitches you are working into. Every so often, gently tug on your unused yarn to keep it taut. Do not pull so hard that your work starts to bunch up.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and each other ch across. (8)
Rows 2-30: ch 1, working in blo, sc in each st across. (8)
Hold both ends of the wristband together and sl st through both the 1st and last rows at the same time to form a circle. Turn the band inside out to hide the sl st seam.
Round 1: Working evenly along the sides of your sc rows, ch 1, sc 30. (30)
Round 2: ch 1, working in blo, *sc 2, inc* repeat from * to * 9 more times. (40)
Graph Notes: Start at the bottom right hand corner and read from right to left, repeat each round twice. Always carry your unused yarn with you, even when it won’t be used in that round, otherwise your gauge will be off. Do not join after every round, simply work on top of the last rounds stitches in a spiral. Round 10 has the thumbhole. It is marked with a dot on the graph. You will need to read the written instructions for that round.
Round 12: ***thumb*** (ac) x 16, ch 8, sk 8, (ac) x 16
Round 13: (mc) x 2, ac, (mc) x 12, ac, (mc) ch 6, ac, (mc) x 12, ac, (mc) x 3 (TIP: work stitches over the thumb hole into the chains and around the dropped (ac) strand from the previous row)
Complete these rounds after following the graph or written instructions for the patterned rounds.
Round 22: sl st to the first st from round 21, ch 2, hdc in same st and in the next 5, dec, *hdc 6, dec* repeat from * to * 3 more times. Sl st to first hdc of the round. (35)
Rounds 23-24: ch 2, working in the third loop, hdc around. Sl st to first hdc of the round. Cut yarn and weave in ends. (35)
