I'm making a pair of gloves and have run into a bit of a snag. The pattern I'm using is different to any other glove pattern I've used when it comes to the gusset increase/decrease. Here's the part that's throwing me - I've gotten to the italicized bit:
... Repeat these two rows - increasing one stitch after the purled stitch using a twisted make-one every other round - until you've added 12 stitches.
Finish with a k-even round.
Place these added stitches along with the purled stitch and the stitch at the end of the needle [14 stitches in all from the second needle] onto a holder, and co 11 stitches.
K the last cast-on stitch together with the first stitch on the third needle. [This prevents a gap from forming between the second and third needles.]
K 1 row even.
THUMB GUSSET DECREASE:
You've effectively increased a 14-stitch wide thumb gusset, and will be making a decreased gusset above it now.
Row 1: K to 14th st on the second needle [the 14th st in this and other odd rows is the first sl st.] ssk, k6, k2tog, k to end of round. [You've decreased those added 10 stitches to 8.]
Any help that can be given would be greatly appreciated!
