  2. Row 2, 3, 4 Chain 3, then crochet a Bullion Stitch into the next stitch. *Chain 1, skip one stitch and crochet a bullion stitch into the following stitch. Repeat from the * all around. Join with a slip stitch into the top of chain 3.
     
  3. Row 5 This is where you add the hole for your thumb. For each person it's different, so you need to decide now where you want your thumb to be. When you get there make a bullion stitch, then crochet 5 chain stitches (might need to make it 6-7 if you have a bigger thumb) Skip one stitch, then crochet a bullion stitch in that stitch. Continue making bullion stitches and chains all the way around.

  4. Row 6 Same as row 2, but when you get to where you chained 5 for the thumb hole, only make one bullion stitch into that gap. Otherwise you'll have a very bulky and uneven hand.
     
  5. Row 7, 8 Same as row 2.
     
  6. Row 9, 10 Single crochets all the way around.
     
  7. Fasten off, and you are done!

I am not sure if this is UK terms -- I don't believe single crochet is used in UK. Their double is our single. So if these are single -- are they US single?

Is this in U.K. or American terms? Tk u. Love the pattern. What yarn did u use? Looks great!

Hello, this is in U.K. (metric) terms. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

It would be nice if a "Bullion Stitch" was explained. I've never heard of it.

Explanation of Bullion stitch: http://crochet.about.com/od/learnmorestitc == hes/a/bullion.htm Video tutorial for Bullion stitch: http://youtu.be/iqIvn3LKEVA and an easier way: http://youtu.be/EWCTA8v_zko Remember to work VERY LOOSELY so that the hook can pass through all those loops.

A Bullion stitch is the same as a Roll stitch I found the instructions for it on About com Essentially it is where you wrap the thread yarn around the hook needle so many times usually pull a loop through the main part like a single crochet start draw over and pull through all loops on the hook needle The exact wording from the site is Wind thread around the hook smoothly times or as many times as called for in your directions insert hook in work wrap thread over hook and draw a loop through wrap over hook again and draw carefully through the coil of all the loops on the hook you may find it necessary to pick the loops off the hook with your fingers one at a time while getting used to this stitch wrap thread over hook again and draw through the remaining stitch The lengthRead More of the roll stitch bullion stitch is determined by the number of wraps around the hook http crochet about com od learnmorestitch es a bullion htm It says that it is for advanced crocheters And it is an antique stitch not used very often Good luck Everyone
