New to the forum! Really excited to join. I've been knitting a few months and i'm working on my first pair of gloves on straight needles. I'm past the thumb working in stockinette and just starting the first finger. One thing I'm confused about though as I'm looking ahead to the 2nd finger...
With rs facing rejoin yarn (at base of 1st finger) and pick up and knit 2 sts from base of first finger, K7, turn
Next row: P16, cast on 2 sts
What i'm confused about is... how can I P16 after turning if I only knit 9 (7 plus the 2 picked up) total? Where do the other 7 come from?
And did I have to do anything special with the first finger? The first finger has me K33, turn P14, then cast on 2 for 16 and then work on these 16 stitches.
This issue pops up on fingers 3, 4, and 5 too, and i've decided to sit tight until i get some help. much appreciated!!
