Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky – less than 60 yards (shown in “oatmeal”)
Tools: US size 10.5 and 10 (or 9) double-pointed needles, US size K crochet hook
Gauge: 3.5 sts x 5 rows = 1” square on size 10.5 needles
Cast on 20 sts on size 10 needles (use size 9 if you like a tighter cuff), join into round and work 2×2 rib (*k2, p2* around) for 8 rounds (do more if you‘d like a longer cuff).
Switch to size 10.5 needles and knit 6 rounds in stockinette stitch.
On next round: k16, m1, k2, m1, k2, m1 (23 sts).
On next round: k16, slip last 7 sts to a spare needle or stitch holder for thumb, cast on two sts above thumb.
Rearrange sts so there are 6 sts on each needle, round beginning is between the two cast…
