I used a chainless foundation when making this but if you do not know how to do that you can start with chaining 28.
If you do not know how to do a chainless foundation, but want to learn how I posted a video I found on youtube a week or so ago.
Using an H or I hook (use a larger hook for larger size)
Rnd 1 hdc 26 and join. Be careful not twist it when joining.
Rnd 2 hdc around.
You can add rounds if you would like the cover more of the hand.
Row 3 hdc 22 (21 for men) and turn. (This is the start of the thumb hole)
Row 4 hdc 22 (21 for men) chain 4 (5 for men) and join.
Rnd 5 - 21 hdc 26 around
You can add or subtract rows to fit.
This pattern is really easy to embellish, and easy to make. Get creative and add your favorite trim or applique.
For my daughter I will be adding cat prints to hers!
