CUFF: Using the background color, cast on 48 sts and work in ribbing of k 1, p 1, for 3 inches or 30 rows. Tie in white yarn. Next row: Working in stockinette stitch (k 1 row, p 1 row) start pattern following the chart. Work 6 rows even.

Next row: Work in pattern across 25 sts, increase 1 st in next st, k 4, increase 1 st in next st, k 19 sts. With background, purl 27 sts, pattern across last 25 sts. Continue increasing in the same manner, keeping pattern on the first 25 sts and having 2 more sts between increases every other row until there are 14 sts between increased sts, ending with a purl row.

Working on the 18 sts of thumb in stockinette stitch, cast on 1 st at each side of thumb. Work until the piece measures 2 inches. Next row: * k 1, k 2 tog, repeat from * across row. Purl 1 row. Next row: * k 2 tog across row. Break yarn leaving 12 inches. Thread a darning needle and draw tightly thru remaining sts. Sew thumb.

Now decrease on both the purl and knit rows until there are 16 sts on the needle. Break yarn. Finish as tip of thumb.
