RIGHT HAND . . . Starting at wrist, ch 106 (18 ch sts to 1 inch). Join with sl st.

1st round: Ch 5, d c in same place as sl st; (skip 2 ch, in next ch make d c, ch 2 and d c) 13 times; skip 2 ch, d c in next ch, ch 5, skip 5 ch, d c in next ch, skip 2 ch; in next ch make d c, ch 2 and d c (a 2-d c group made). Skip 2 ch, d c in next ch, ch 5, skip 5 ch, d c in next ch; (skip 2 ch, in next ch make d c, ch 2 and d c) 15 times; skip 2 ch, sl st into ch-5 loop first made.

2nd md: Ch 5, d c in same place as sl st; (in next ch-2 sp make d c, ch 2 and d c) 13 times; ch 5, skip 2 ch of next ch-5, s c in next ch, ch 5, in next ch-2 sp make d c, ch 2 and d c; ch 5, skip 2 ch of next ch-5, s c in next ch. Ch 5, (in next ch-2 sp make d c, ch 2 and d c) 15 times; join.

3rd md: Ch 5, d c in same place as sl st; (in next ch-2 sp make d c, ch 2 and d c) 13 times; d c in next ch-5 loop, ch 5, d c in next loop; 2-d c group over next 2-d c group, d c in next loop, ch 5, d c in next loop; make a 2-d c group over each of the next five 2-d c groups; over next d c-group make d c, ch 2, d c, ch 2 and d c (an increase); make d c group over next d c-group; over next d c-group make d c, ch 2, d c, ch and d c--thus the increases for thumb are started. Now make d c-groups over d c-groups to end of md; join.

4th round: Dc group over each d c-group across to within ch-5 loop; ch 5, skip 2 ch of next loop, s c in next ch, ch 5, d c-group over ch-2 of next d c-group; ch 5, skip 2 ch of next ch-5 loop, s c in next ch, ch 5 and make d c-group in each group to end of round; join.

5th round: Work in pattern until 5 d c groups are made after the open-work pattern on back of hand, over next d c-group make an increase as before (3 d c with ch-2 between); make a d c-group over each of the next 3 d c groups, inc. over the next group and continue working in pattern to end of rnd..

6th to l0th rnds inch Work as for last 2 rnds, making an increase over each increase as before on every other round (having 2 more d c-groups between increases) for thumb. Work without increasing until glove, when tried on, reaches to base of thumb (about 2 ¾ inches in all).

Next round: To start thumb, work in pattern around until 8 d c-groups are made after the open-work pattern. Mark the 8th d c-group with a colored thread, and work over the next ll groups; then ch 5, skip the group with the colored thread and continue to work in spiral fashion around the last 11 d c groups, making another d c-group at center of ch-5 and working until thumb, when tried on, is 2 rnds less than desired length.

Next round: Make d c in each ch-2 sp around.

Following round: S c in every other d c around.

Fasten off, leaving a 6-inch length of thread. Thread a needle with this thread and fasten end securely on wrong side. Attach thread to last d c of d c-group marked with colored thread and complete round, making an increase over the d c-group at base of thumb.

Work in pattern across d c-groups of palm, ch 5 and work across back of hand for middle finger, making 2 d c-groups over ch-5 (open pattern), and making a d c-group in each d c-group at base of forefinger.
