Here’s some Q&A’s from the discussion group:
Question about the pattern re: size
kristin_a: It’s for a medium, 8″ circumference. What should I do if my circumference is 8.5″? Should I wrap around the pegs in a looser fashion? Use stretchier yarn?
Vickie Howell: Yeah, wrapping a bit looser will probably work just fine. You could also only use 1 strand of worsted weight, but they’d be much more open weave.
Another option is to just work the whole piece flat and then seam it together, leaving a slit for the thumb on the side. There might be a proper way to do this, but I’d probably just work the whole piece as I describe for the thumb section where you work back & forth, instead of in rounds.
Question about wrapping yarn…
linzserena: Hello! I don’t know if I’ve been wrapping my yarn correctly. I made a little diagram (in pics – called loom) to show what I’ve been doing. I’ve been doing method A.. tried method B but found it was WAY too difficult to “cast off” or “hook off”. I finished one glove using method A but it didn’t look like the example. I’ll post pics in a bit.
JenLava: A is correct. At least that is what I’ve been doing and it looks like the example. Good Luck!
