    Gauge/Sizing

    10 sts and 10 rows in 2” (not stretched)

    Gauge sample is worked in Moss Stitch:

    1. Ch any even number of sts, sc in 4th ch from hook, (ch1, sk1, sc in next st) across.
    2. ch2, turn,  sc in ch1 sp, (ch1, sk sc, sc in ch1 sp) across. The last sc will be worked in the space below the ch2 from the start of the previous row. 
    3. Repeat row 2 for gauge swatch.

    The pattern is sized for women’s small up to men’s large, based on circumference of the four fingers as measured around the knuckles:

    Pattern Notes

    This pattern is worked bottom up. You’ll start with a cuff made of slip stitch ribbing. Then you’ll start working along one edge of the ribbing to form the cuff, working up toward the fingers. The flaps are completely optional.

    Ch1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.

    All joins are worked as ss to first st
