Step 1: Getting Started

Special note about emilynd06's pictured version: Modified to work back and forth for the first 8-10 rows, in order to create a button-over wrist. Worked two small Solomon’s Knots for each one written in the pattern, as I liked the look of the lattice better that way. I also worked a lace border from a different pattern at the wrist, instead of additional Solomon’s Knots.

Size: To fit average hand

Note: These gloves will stretch to fit most women's hands; washing will restore them to their original size.

Materials:1-1/2 oz of a fine mercerized crochet cotton (No. 20); Size 7 steel crochet hook; Tubular elastic to fit around wrists.

Gauge:6 Solomon's knots to 2" worked on size 7 steel hook. To save time, take time to check gauge.
