k across for one inch.

Repeat row 14 (60 stitches remain)

K around for 1 more inch.  Repeat row 14 (56 stitches remain)

K around for 2 inches.  Cuff should measure 5 inches.

 Next row:  needle 1, k across until 2 stitches from end of needle, increase 1, knit.  Needle 2: k1, increase in stitch 2, k across to 2 stiches from end of needle, increase 1, k1.  Needle three, k1, increase in second stitch , k to end of needle. (64 stitches)

Next 2 rounds, knit across

Begin the thumb.  K around needle 1 and the next to last stitch of needle 2.  Increase in last stitch. K all stitches of needle 3.

k around.

next round: k needle 1, k needle 2 until last stitch.  Pickup a stitch, slip off pick up stith and last  onto new needle, called Thumb Needle.  Using thumb needle, pick up a stitch (now 3 stitches on thumb needle.  knit across needle three.

next round, k across.

next round, k across needles 1 & 2.  On thumb needle, k1, pick up stitch, k1, pick up stitch, k 1 (5 stitches), k across needle 3.
