Check hand circumference by measuring around the knuckles. Choose the size that corresponds to a little larger than your measurement. For instance if your hand circumference measures 7.25” then you would choose Teen/Sm Adult.

If you have trouble meeting gauge, or your gloves are working up smaller/larger, go up/down a size in the pattern or try going up/down a hook size.

To lengthen your gloves add more rows, the pattern will tell you where to do this.
