About
Crochet some really cute seamless rainbow gloves! To find out what hook size to use, measure your arm 5 inches below the bottom of your thumb. If the circumference is 5-6.5 inches, use a 4.0mm hook. If it is 7-8.5 inches, use a 4.5mm hook. Use a 5.0mm hook if your measurement is 8.5-10 inches.

There is a picture tutorial in this PDF as well as a video tutorial for the dc2tog, csdc and sdc stitches.

This tutorial comes with a step by step YouYube video. Video can be seen here!

You will need:

  • 8 colors of worsted weight yarn, 50 yards of each color (I only used about 20 - 25 yards of each color but it’s better to be safe then sorry!)

  • Size 4.0, 4.5, or 5.0mm crochet hook depending on arm measurement

  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends.

  • A hand to put the finished item on.
