Gauge
32 stitches to 10cm/4”, 40 rows to 10cm/4” on 2.75mm / US 2 needles in the round.

Size
The pattern as written covers one width size, (18cm/7” diameter).

The size can be easily modified by adding or sub-tracting repeats of the chart. Each repeat (8 stitches) measures approximately 2.5cm/1”. Measure around the widest part of the hand to determine size needed. The size as written requires 56 stitches—make sure to increase or decrease your cast on in multiples of 8.

There are two lengths—Short: 14cm/5.5”, Long: 22cm/8.5”. Again this can be customised by altering the number of repeats knitted.

Please Note: Modifications to the size may require additional yarn.
