For this project you will need a 5.5mm hook or US I hook, and worsted weight US 4ply or UK 10ply yarn. And a stitch marker of some kind.

I redid the beginner tutorial with slow motion to help you, see video above.
Sc in second ch from hook. *sl st in next stitch, ch 3 and skip a stitch and sl st into next, sc in next stitch* Repeat what is between the *'s. sc in last space. ( sc, sl st, ch 3, sk a st, sl st) at end, ch 1 and turn
Sc in first st, * BFS 4 times in the ch 3 space from previous row, skip a stitch and sl st into the sc st from previous row * Repeat til end of row. Sl st into last stitch.
Sl st twice to form a ring and ch 1. (see picture below) (sc 1st st only, *4 BFS in ch 3 sp, sl st in middle sc*)
Rounds 3 & 4
bpsc into all sts around (25 sts)
Rounds 5 – 12
(change color here if you wish your glove to be another color than your ruffle)
BFS your first st and Place stitch marker here, Continue the round and when you get to the end, do the first part of the stitch in the last stitch of the round, and finish the stitch using that long first stitch of the round, like shown below.
Continue crocheting in the spiral round for a total of 8 rounds. NOTE: Always count your rounds from the left side of your marker. (I personally count over two stitches to the left of my marker, then start counting my rows up from there til I count 8 rows and my hook is at the beginning of the row to start round 13, then I start my thumb.)
Round 13– Making the Thumb
Sc in next 6 stitches, then FDSC 4 times. Make a butterfly stitch to connect.
Example, go through first sc on glove and draw up a loop,
YO and pull through loop, go in through next sc and pull up a loop,
YO and pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through 2 loops, ch 1.
BFS 4 more times to finish the first round of the thumb
Second round of thumb
BFS as normal, using the wings of the stitch, but DO NOT ch 1 at end of st, because we want to decrease. Will be 5 BFS's here
Third round of thumb
sc 2 in all sts around (8 sts)
Fourth round of thumb
sc 1 in all sts and ch1 cut yarn. (8 sts)
Rounds 9 - 12
Attach your yarn on the left side of the thumb and continue to BFS in all stitches around, including the bottom inside stitches of the thumb.
To make the sts before the thumb on round 9, below shows the stitch started, and finish the stitch to the left where you see the V
And on the other side of the thumb, Don't ch 1 after the BFS , just sl st into the stitch on the right side first, then start your stitch in the middle stitch, and end your stitch where you see my hook below. In that big stitch at start of round.
To make the sts before the thumb on round 9
Don't ch 1 after BFS, just sl st in this space shown above, then continue to BFS as normal.
To make the sts before the thumb on round 10
See the pretzel above? Do the butterfly stitch using only the two top sts of the pretzel. Then continue as normal.
BFS for one more round, giving you 12 rounds total of BFS. Do not ch 1 on your last stitch on round 12
Round 13 (Change colors here if you wish)
start your next round (make sure your at the start of the thumb) sc in all sts. At the end of the first row of sc's make sure you have 25 sts, if you have 26, then decrease in last st. Decrease a few sts on this row if you want the grip to be more snug around your fingers.
Rounds 14 - 16
BPSC in all sts around (25 sts)
If you have 20 sts here too it's fine, just try on the glove and make sure it's good, if it's to tight it's easy enough to increase a few stitches on round 13 when your making your making your sc's.
