I'm trying to make the Men's Fingerless Gloves from the pattern on this site. Under Thumb Gusset, I have the 18 stitches on a holder and 56 stitches left. I cast on 4 like it says and knit a little more. Now I don't know what to do.
The pattern says leave 8 on needle, slip 32 onto a holder, leave another 8 on the needle. It doesn't add up to 56. I know this is probably simple to most anybody else but I don't know what my next step is here.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
(actually I'm not sure I put the right 18 on the needle. It's the ones inbetween the purls, right?)
