"These Lacey Vine Fingerless Gloves are an elegant way to keep warm. They are nearly the full length of the fingers with only the tips exposed so that you can still text, flip through the mail, or hook your dog on the leash. The most fun is to coordinate and show off your manicure with your gloves. It is a quick simple knit and also makes a great gift for the office gals. You should be able to get 3 pairs from a regular size skein of worsted weight acrylic yarn. Use short US size 6 needles."

NotesThese gloves are meant to be a snug fit on medium size lady hand. If you need a larger size, use US size 7 needles.

  3. Finishing Both Hands
    Cut yarn with a 24 inch tail. Use this tail to sew the seam from the ribbing towards the beginning edge. Half way, stop connecting the 2 sides and “Buttonhole-edge” one side for 1½ inches. Return to connecting the 2 edges to the end. Turn, and sew over that seam back to the opening and “Buttonhole-edge” the other side. At the end of the opening, snuggly reinforce the seam and hide the end of the yarn inside the seam. Work in any other yarn ends.

how is skp stitch done?

How do I knit "Buttonhole-edge" one side (for thumb hole)? Looked all over internet for instructions.

I'm having same problem. Any help?

Hi pesrblack 4907839, what the designer means by "buttonhole edge" for the thumb hole is finishing the edge to make it nice. You can do this by using the same yarn that the gloves were knit with, or a lighter weight yarn that matches (like a sport weight), and just making an overcast stitch over the edges of the thumb hole.
