I’m always afraid I can not knit symmetrical or equal when I knit two or more parts separately in centimeters. I developed this pattern in rows and stitches to ensure I knit both hands exactly equal. Both hands are identical, and there is no difference between front or back side. The only difficulty is you have to count rows, but you are always counting rows and stitches when knitting…
I made a written version and a little chart of the thumb increases
For hands size M/L (women’s size)

Gauge: 10 x 10 cm = 27 sts. x 35 rows

Sock needles size 2.25 mm (I recommend a 15cm set for the hand and a 10cm set for the thumb)
Stitch marker
Stitch holder
Crochet hook (2.5)

Used yarn:
Green version: Drops Fabel nr 542 ( 0.7 skeins: 35 gr., 143 m.)
Blue version with cable: Drops Fabel nr.103 (0.7 skeins: 35 gr. 143 m.)
Brown- reddish version: Drops Delight nr 13 (0.7 skeins: 35 gr. 122 m.)

Remember: gauge is important, the pattern is written in rows and stitches, not in cm.
