Thanks for your email. There are two sides of every every hand warmer to seam: seam one side all the way down (the side that covers your pinky finger). The other seam (where the thumb is located) is where the break in the seam is to allow room for the thumb. Depending on what hand warmer you are working, the right or the left, the break in the seam is on one side or the other.

Depending on what hand warmer pattern you are working on from my book:

3 Cable Hand Warmers: One side of the hand warmer seam completely. The other side, seam only the top 1.5", leave open 2.5", and then seam the rest of the side. That 2.5" opening is for the thumb.

Lucky Horseshoe Hand Warmers: One side of the hand warmer seam completely. The other side, seam only the top 2", leave open 2.5", and then seam the rest of the side. That 2.5" opening is for the thumb.

If you want a tighter fit on the thumb, leave a 2" opening instead of 2.5", or whatever you prefer. Hope that helps. Thanks so much for buying my book.

Hi, Kim i just bought you book, Expand Your Knitting Skills. I want to make the hand warmers for my grand daughters. I am a "stop and go "knitter, which means i don't knit in the summer, here in Minnesota. Anyway, i was looking at how you make the thumb opening. I really do not get it. If you have a tub(basically) after weaving up the whole side does the hole for the thumb actually come from the top opening and if so is not this a very tight fit for your thumb? Do you have a video i can watch i am much better at visualising things. Think Snow!
