To print a list of all crochet abbreviations to keep in your crochet notebook, check out my quick guide here:
Puff Stitch – Insert hook into designated stitch, YO and pull up a loop. Insert hook into same stitch, YO and pull up a loop. Insert hook into same stitch, YO and pull up a loop (7 loops on hook). YO and pull through all 7 loops. Chain 1.
This pattern works the wrist band first in a flat piece, requiring you to sew the two ends together before continuing. You will then continue the fingerless glove by working in the round. This pattern works puff stitches in between the stitches of the previous round. You will not work into the v’s of the stitch until you’ve reached the band.
Make the matching hat too!
