Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Crochet tension: width of 16 dc with Fox = 10 cm.
Crochet info: Crochet round in dc’s without finishing the round. Crochet in the back loop of dc (not through the whole dc).
Crochet border: 1 dc in first st, *4 ch, 1 tr in first ch, skip approx 2 cm, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round

Loosely crochet 34 ch with crochet hook size 5 mm and Fox and form a ring with a sl st. Crochet round with 1 dc in each ch = 34 dc – read Crochet info. When piece measures 13 cm make an opening for thumb by crocheting 7 loose ch at the beg of round, skip the next 7 dc and continue round with dc’s as before (the opening will be approx 4 cm, change this by crocheting less/more ch and skipping the same number of dc’s). On the next round crochet 1 dc in each of the 7 = 34 dc. Continue round until piece measures 24 cm, or desired length (2 cm left until finished measurements). Now dec by skipping every other dc on next round = 17 dc. Crochet 1 round without dec, 1 round skipping every other dc = 8 or 9 dc. Crochet 1 more round with dec = 4 or 5 dc left. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining dc. Sew tight.
Thumb: Crochet 14 dc round the thumb opening (1 dc in each of the skipped dc and 1 dc in each of the 7 ch). Crochet rounds with dc until thumb measures approx 5 cm (or desired length). Crochet 1 round skipping every other dc = 7 dc left. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining dc. Sew tight.
Crochet border: Crochet a border round the opening with crochet hook size 5 and Eskimo – see above.
