I used 4ply wool and a slightl smaller hoolk ( 3.50mm)
I have to ask.  Did you do a gauge swatch?  Even if you are just half a stitch per inch/4 cms off, that can throw your size way, way off.  You can read more about gauge in the book.

In the US, wools are no longer sized by plys because of the huge variance.  The Craft Yarn Council of America has the US Standard Weight System as a guideline.  Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock is a #1 superfine yarn.  Comparable yarns you may be able to find in the UK:
Rowan 4-ply Soft, Lucy Neatby sock yarn, Opal sock yarn, Regia sock yarn, and Lang Jawoll sock yarn. 

Keep in mind that the hook size is a *recommendation* and what matters is which hook gets you the proper gauge.  Don't forget to wash and dry the gauge swatch before measuring!

Finished my first glove after a week of hard work and its enormous! I used 4ply wool and a slightl smaller hoolk ( 3.50mm) so not sure what happened there  Undecided tried it on and it is about two times the size of my hand and I dont think I have particularly freakishly small hands! even my boyf tried it on and it was enormous! Might have to give up on this project  Embarrassed
That happened to me too! I have to admit I didn't do a swatch, but after I had one ginormous glove I DID do a swatch, and the gauge was waaaay off. I had to adapt the pattern to fit my hands.
