Ok, this might be a silly question, but I'm a fairly inexperienced knitter and I'm having a lot of trouble understanding how to knit gloves with fingers.
I pretty much only know the very basics of knitting so far and JUST started knitting in the round. I just finished my first pair of arm warmers (actually first finished knit project EVER, yay), which are basically a very long tube that starts at my knuckles and goes up from there with slight shaping (decreasing in wrist area). Im not following a specific pattern because... so far most patterns confuse the heck out of me :doh:
Im working on a modified version of what i just made to try to make hobo gloves. I'd be happy knitting it the same way with dpn, keeping the tubing for the hand part and not having 4 individual fingers, but i dont understand how to make the thumb. I made a hole of some sort for my thumb to stick through. I didnt change the shaping of the hand, just did a back and forth kind of thing for a few rows to create the hole for my thumb to poke through.
I really want to make a hobo-glove half finger kind of thing for the thumb, but am unsure how to go about attaching such a thing to the existing knitting. Does anyone know a video or pattern that could show me in really simple terms how to do this? Are thumbs (or fingers for that matter) normally knitted separately and then attached, or are they somehow knitted right along as part of the rest of the glove?
