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.
Cast on 38 sts on 3 needles. Join, being careful not to twist sts. Work in ribbing of k 1, p 1 for 3½ inches. Now work in stockinette stitch (k each rnd) for 1 inch. Then start shaping for thumb as follows: 1st rnd: P 1, inc. 1 st in next st, k 1, inc. 1 st in next st, p 1, k around. 2nd and 3rd rnds: P 1, k 5, p 1, k around. 4th rnd: P 1, inc. in next st, k 3, inc. in next st, p 1, k around. 5th and 6th rnds: P 1, k 7, p 1, k around. 7th rnd: P 1, inc. in next st, k 5, inc. in next st, p 1, k around. Continue thus, increasing 2 sts in thumb gore every 3rd rnd, until there are 13 sts between the 2 p-ribs. Next rnd: P 1, slip the thumb sts onto a safety pin to be worked later; cast on 5 sts, k to complete rnd (40 sts). Discontinue p-ribs and work, around in stockinette st for 3 inches.
Next rnd: * K 6, k 2 tog. Repeat from * to end of rnd (35 sts). Work 5 rnds straight. 7th rnd: * K 5, k 2 tog. Repeat from * to end of rnd (30 sts). Work 4 rnds straight. 12th rnd: * K 4, k 2 tog. Repeat from * to end of rnd (25 sts). Work 3 rnds straight. 16th rnd: * K 1, k 2 tog. Repeat from * to end of rnd (20 sts). Work 2 rnds straight. 19th rnd: * K 2 tog. Repeat from * to end of rnd (15 sts) . Break yarn, leaving an 8-inch end. Thread this end into a needle and run through remaining 15 sts. Draw tight and darn in on wrong side to reinforce tip.
Work thumb as follows: Pick up the sts from safety pin and 5 sts over the 5 cast-on sts. Work straight for about 2 inches (½ inch from tip of thumb). 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.
