HOW-TO: 1. Take your rectangle of sweater material with the finished ribbed edge at the bottom, and lay it flat on the table in front of you, right side facing up. Then take the two outer edges and fold them inward until they meet at the center (Note: the wrong side will be facing you). 2. Place one of your hands down on the fabric with your thumb open an extended, and loosely trace your hand (Note: you'll want about half an inch room around your hand). 3. Here I hand stitched around the black outline of the hand I created. But, for added security for gloves that will last several winters, I suggest quickly running them on your sewing machine. 4. Lastly....leaving at least a 1/4 inch room around the perimeter, cut out your hand figure, and then turn your gloves right side out. Presto, you're all done!
