If you're kntting the stitches across the row together with the corresponding st of the cast on, you'll create a roll or hem. I agree that that's what this sounds like. It may come several rows into the lace pattern and sometime there's a yo, k2tog row at the halfway point between the two knit together rows. When you make the fold this yo, k2tog row forms a picot edging on the gloves. If this instruction shows up later in the pattern, it may create a tuck in the gloves. You may have a better picture of the gloves than this (last pattern). See what the edging looks like. If it's not ribbing, it may well be a folded hem.

Thanks for the link, salmonmac. Maybe this makes the cuff a double layer?

Yes, a folded up hem is what it sounds like. The 'lace pattern' the OP talked about could be a yo k2tog row which will make a picot edge when the CO edge is joined to the main part.

Yes, it does. It's actually just a variation on the first link you posted. I'm intrigued about what it could be if not a hem?

Thank you everyone again for all your suggestions. I am glad to say all your advice was spot on and I was indeed making a hem, but the only photo of the gloves didn't show that part and these are my first set of gloves. I did end up going to my local yarn shop and getting help. I guess I'm more of a visual learner than I thought!

I'm so glad you got it figured out. I know how frustrating it can be to run into something that just doesn't make any sense. Maybe you'll post a photo when you're done? I'm probably not the only one who'd love to see them.
