# Buy the needles. You have two choices: double-pointed needles, and a circular needle. If you decide to go with a circular needle, make sure the wire (connecting the two needles) is very short, about the circumference of your finished gloves. After you pick double pointed needles or circular needles, you have the choice of bamboo, metal, or plastic needles.

# First things first: tie a slip knot. (Don’t know ___? Click on the link!) Then, cast on 12 stitches on your first needle. Pick up your next needle, and cast on another 12 stitches. Pick up your third needle, and cast on 16 for the extra large size; 12 for the large size; 8 stitches for the medium size; and 4 for the smallest size.
