- 15 sts & 11 rows = 4" (10 cm) in hdc worked through back loops only. Take time to check gauge.
- Each cuff is worked as a rectangle, ad then seamed before attaching to gloves.
Directions (Make 2):
Row 1 (WS): Ch 25, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn – 24 hdc.
Rows 2-20: Ch 1 (does not count as st), hdc in back loop of each st across, turn.
At end of Row 20, fasten off leaving a 15" (38 cm) tail.
- Fold cuff in half lengthwise with RS together. Using the long tail whipstitch to seam, going through the bottom of the foundation row sts and through the back loop of Row 20 to maintain pattern. Using sewing needle and matching thread, securely sew one side of cuff to edge of glove, being careful to only sew through the glove lining.
*Note: When taking gloves on and off, be mindful of pulling only on glove, not crocheted cuff.
