Now we need to split our work into 2 holes for 2 hands. Hand a) and hand b)

Round 17a) ch2, 1htr next 15 sts, ch2, turn work, 1htr into 6th st from end of round, 1htr to end, ss to join. (23)

Round 18a) ch2, 1htr in each st round (incl the ch2 made in prev round), ss to join (23)

Round 20a) ch2, FPtr into each st round, ss to join. (21)

Round 21a) ch2, FPtr into each st round, ss to join. Cast off and weave in ends.

Now for the other hand hole. Attach yarn 2nd st from the ch2 gap (with ch2 gap on your left)

Round 17b) ch2, 1htr next 2 sts, ch2, turn work, 1htr in each st round, ss to join (23)

Round 18b) ch2, 1htr in each st round (incl ch2) ss to join, (23)

Round 19b) ch2, 1htr into 1st st, htr2tog, 1htr next 10, htr2tog, 1htr next 8 sts (21)

Round 20b) ch2, FPtr into each st round, ss to join. (21)

Round 21b) ch2, FPtr into each st round, ss to join. Cast off and weave in ends

TO FINISH – using your needle and a length of red yarn, sew up the gap between the 2 hand holes.

Heart detail.

Using the white yarn take an approx. 4m long length and thread it through your needle ready to work as a double strand.

Find a half way point towards the bottom of your glove to start embroidering your heart.

Insert needle into work, and come up as if working a normal running stitch about 1cm long.

Making sure the needle comes up through the middle of the loop created by the yarn to make your chain stitch.

Continue the chain stitch in a heart shape (or design of your choice).
