Once you have knitted the last round for the wrist, move the last 5 sts onto a stitch holder and cut the knitting yarn (leave enough yarn to finish the thumb) these 5 sts will make the thumb of the glove

With a new piece of yarn cast on 5 sts onto the 3rd needle and close the round

Knit 3 rounds in stocking stitch for the palm bit

Divide the last 5 sts between 2 needles and close the circle

The remaining stitches can be on hold on the other two needles for now

Knit in stocking stitch to desired index finger length cut the yarn and thread through the 5 sts pull tightly and pass the yarn inside the finger

You now have 15 sts on two needles that remain (these will be your remaining 3 fingers of the glove)

Move 5 sts onto a 3rd needle and close the round

knit in stocking sts for 2 rounds

start middle finger

move 2 sts from 3rd needle onto 2nd needle (3 sts remain on 3rd needle)

move 3 sts from 1st needle to 2nd needle

you should now have 10 sts on hold (on 2nd needle which will now be unused)

you will be working the middle finger from 2sts on the 1st needle and 3 sts on what was the 3rd needle but has now become the 2nd

begin knitting the middle finger in stocking stitch

make the middle finger slightly longer than the 2nd finger and close off as before

start 4th finger

move 3 sts from the stitch holder needle onto the 2nd needle

move 1st 2 sts from stitch holder needle onto the 1st needle

you shoul have 5 sts left onto stitch holder needle

knit in stocking stitch until the 4th measures approximately like the second finger

divide the last 5 sts from the needle holder onto two needles
