Notes

Provisional cast-on with crochet hook (http://knittingatknoon.com/ProvCaston.mpg)

I knit stripes so I have a zillion ends to weave in but they do look lively. I knit the smaller size and it fits my daughter (age 9).

The thumb construction is INGENIOUS!

These are really comfortable in the hand: snug and stretchy.

When knitting for myself:

  • use thicker yarn (and possibly cast on less sts)
  • knit the bigger size
  • try with Noro
