When making fingers, label each finger as
you complete it.
Glove [make 2]
Loosely CO 14[16, 18] sts. Distribute evenly
between needles and join to begin working
in the round, being careful not to twist.
Work in stockinette st until work measures
0.75[1, 1.25] inches, or desired length. Break
yarn, leaving a 6-inch tail, and place all

on one needle with litle finger at end; place
remaining sts of these fingers on a second
needle, as shown.
Note: When working Joining Round,
pull yarn tightly when working first and last
sts of each finger, to avoid forming gaps. Do
not weave in yarn tails from separate fingers
as you go; instead, leave these until the finishing
stage, when they can be used to close the gaps
between the fingers.
