Sorry for the delay in adding the pattern but the weekend has been full on! I had my graduation ceremony on Friday and the weekend has been filled with family gatherings. It was such a wonderful day and one that I won’t forget too quickly. So no more training wheels as I am now officially a fully fledged nurse! Argghhh!!!!!
Onto the pattern…
Abbreviations and stitch instructions:
Sc – single crochet
Sl st – slip stitch
Ch – chain
Dec – decrease
To do a decrease, place hook in sc and yarn over and pull through, insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull through. You should have 3 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through all three loops. One decrease done!
Ch 16 and sl st to join with the first ch to create a ring. (I used white yarn for this as it serves as the edging for the glove)
R1. Sc in each ch (16sc), sl st in the first sc and ch 1.
R2 – R3. Sc in each st as in R1 (16sc per row).
R4. Join the solid colour with a sl stitch, ch 1 and do 1 sc in each stitch for a total of 16sc.
R5 – R6. Ch1 and do 1 sc in each stitch as in R4 for a total of 16sc.
R7. Ch 1 and 1 sc in the next 5 sc. In the 6th, 7th and 8th stitch do 2 sc in each stitch (to shape the thumb), skip the next 6 stitches and sc in each of the remaining stitches.
R8, R9 & R10. Ch1 and 1 sc in each st (13sc), sl st in the first sc at the end of each row.
R11. Decrease row. 1 sc in first st, 1 decrease, 1 sc in the next st, 1 dec, 1sc, 1 dec, 1 sc, 1 dec and 1 sc (9sc). Sl st to the first sc.
R12. Final decrease row. 4 decreases, 1 sc and then sl st to finish (5sc). Sew the hole closed to form the top of the glove.
R1. Attach the same solid colour on a stitch where you skipped 6 sc and do 1 sc in each stitch. You will gain a seventh stitch by placing your hook in the crook of the thumb (where you shaped using the two sc in the 6th, 7th and 8th stitch (see pic)) So you should have 7 sc at the end of the first row and then sl st to the first sc. Hope that makes sense.
R2. Ch1 and 1 sc in the first stitch, decrease in the next, 1 sc, 1 dec and 1 sc (5sc). Finish off and sew up the hole.
Sew up the hole of the thumb.
Crook of the thumb is in between this first sc and the last sc.
