I use US Crochet stitch terminology.
Due to the nature of this pattern – the yarn and hook used is only a suggestion and any substitute may be used.
Size of finished product will vary depending on yarn and also size of hook used.
Size: Child – approx 18 cm / 7 inches in the round
Note: To adjust for other sizes – measure the arm between the wrist and elbow for a comfortable fit.
Chain the multiple for the pattern according to measurement.
This pattern stitch is worked in a multiple of 3 STS and is worked in the round.
NOTE: The glove is worked from the fingers down to the elbow – which give the option to adjust the length as needed.
TIP: I worked in continuous rounds – use a stitch marker to help you keep record of your rounds.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
