Continue as follows: P3, M.1 (= 21 sts), * P3, K3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times. When you get to the row in diagram marked by the number-1 dec 1 st in each of the 3 middle P-sections on the palm of hand by P2 tog. When you get to the row marked by the number-2 dec 1 st in each of the same 3 P-sections by P2 tog (i.e. only P1 left in these 3 P-sections). After this round there are 34 sts on round. When you get to the row marked with the number-3 continue to K the 15 sts on palm of hand and work M.1 with P3 each side as before. When you get to the row marked with the number-4 inc for thumb gusset. Inc 1 st each side of the last but one st on round (= K-st) by making 1 YO each side of this st. On next round K YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. Repeat the inc on every other round a total of 5 times – 2 more sts between the 2 YO for each inc. When all inc are complete there are 11 thumb sts and a total of 48 sts on needle. When piece measures 5 cm from beg of thumb gusset slip the 11 thumb sts on a stitch holder and cast on 1 new st behind these = 38 sts. Complete M.1 – piece now measures approx 2 cm from where thumb sts were slipped on stitch holder. Slip the first 17 sts on a stitch holder, keep the next 9 sts on needle and slip the last 12 sts on a stitch holder.

LITTLE FINGER = 9 sts, cast on 1 new st towards the hand = 10 sts. Work in the round with K over K and P over P as before – K the new st. When finger measures approx 6 cm K2 tog across the round. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining 5 sts, tighten tog.

Keep the 2 sts picked up towards little finger + 5 sts from upper hand and 4 sts from palm of hand on needle. Slip the remaining 20 sts back on stitch holders.

RING FINGER = 11 sts, Cast on 1 new st towards sts on stitch holders = 12 sts. Work stocking st in the round for approx 7.5 cm, then K2 tog across the round. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining 6 sts, tighten tog.

MIDDLE FINGER: Slip 5 sts from upper hand and 4 sts from palm of hand back on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm, pick up 2 sts towards ring finger and cast on 1 new st towards sts on stitch holder = 12 sts.
