Hi Linda, these look really good but I was a bit confused about the finishing up part. You mentioned sewing up the side seams twice & also is it at the bottom by the wrist that the 3.5cm gap is left? Thanks.Debbie xx

Debbie
you sew up the ribbed part
then leave the gap and sew to the bottom the hole becomes the hole for your thumb
