I find myself more in the mood for some small projects right now, so I’ve snuck in another one.
This is a clever pattern! You knit a 10-stitch strip of garter stitch, then join with a 3-needle bind-off or grafting.* Then you pick up stitches around one edge of the tube for the hand, and cast on a loop of stitches for the thumb gusset. From there, it’s just working downward, decreasing for the thumb gusset.
The pattern calls for stockinette all the way down to the cuff, but I finished with 3 rounds of 1×1 rib to keep it from rolling.
It’s a great project for that single skein of Noro Kureyon or Silk Garden hanging around in your stash, or for a bit (about 100 yards) of aran-weight handspun.
*I did the 3-needle bind-off. The small ridge created from the bind-off is barely noticeable in look or feel.
