CHADWICK'S RED HEART KNITTING WORSTED, 2 skeins (2 oz. skeins).
4 double-pointed bone knitting needles No. 5 (4 mm. size).
GAUGE: 5½ sts make 1 inch; 7 rnds make 1 inch.
LEFT HAND … Follow directions for Plain Gloves, to point where glove is placed on hand to mark off fingers. Mark off sts for forefinger by placing safety pin on palm and back of hand. (Be sure to have an even number of sts.) Take remaining sts off on a strand of yarn, to be worked later.
FOREFINGER … Divide sts of forefinger on 3 needles. Cast on 2 sts between palm and back of hand. Work around until finger, when tried on, reaches ½ inch from fingertip (about 2½ inches in all). Then shape tip as follows: 1st rnd: * K 2 tog., k 2. Repeat from * around. Work 1 rnd straight. 3rd rnd: * K 2 tog., k 1. Repeat from * around. Work 1 rnd straight. 5th rnd: K 2 tog. around. Break yarn, leaving a 6-inch end. Thread this end into needle and run through remaining sts. Draw tight and darn in end on wrong side to reinforce tip.
Divide remainder of sts on 3 needles and pick up 2 sts where 2 sts were cast on for forefinger. Work around, until 1 inch from tip (about 2½ inches in all). Then shape tip as follows: 1st rnd: Dec. 4 sts evenly around. Work 1 rnd straight. Repeat the last 2 rnds alternately 3 more times. Next rnd: K 2 tog. around. Finish same as forefinger.
THUMB … Pick up sts for thumb from safety pin and 3 sts on the 5 cast-on sts. Work straight for about 2 inches and finish as for forefinger.
RIGHT HAND … Work to correspond except, after picking up sts of both forefinger and thumb, work only 1 inch in ribbing of k 1, p 1. Bind off loosely in ribbing.
