Measuring Hand Circumference

Measuring Hand Circumference

Click here to read the article: Glove Construction - Hand Measurements.

The hand circumference is measured above the thumb, but not around the thumb, since the thumb is knitted separately. The measuring tape is wound around the hand and overlapped to take the measurement. There is no need to put a finger under the tape measure to add ease because the knitted gloves will have sufficient stretch. The photo only shows the location of the measurement, not the measurement since I was taking the photo with my other hand.
