Once you have sewn up the side and left a gap for your thumb, grab same small Double pointed needles mine are about 4 inches long and I am using 3.5mm.
Using your 2 DPN’s and pick up 5 stitches along the side’s and start knitting across the top, then you’re going to pick up and knit a further 2 stitches with your 3rd to bridge the gap.
Knit the remaining 5 stitches and pick up another 2 stitches to bridge the gap on the other side, this will then form your tube.
I knit seven rounds in total before binding off. You can slip on and off to gauge length as you knit! You may want to use a small marker as well to mark the beginning of each round.
Voila you now have a thumb J
The full Pattern for the Short Hand Snugs is as follows
These short hand warmers are knitted flat, then sewn up at the side leaving a gap for the thumb.
I am using 50g of DK Bigwigs Angora yarn, but you can use any weight yarn and just add more rows to adjust size.
Needle 4.mm (6)
