Calling all you helpful ladies out there! I am in process of doing my first project using dpns. I making fingerless gloves in a very easy plain stocking stitch [think U.S. call it stockinette?] Anyway I have 13 stitches on waste yarn for the thumb part and this is where I am stuck. The pattern says to put the 13 sts on three dpns casting on 2 sts extra sts on the last needle. If I could back track for a moment, when I knitted the main part of the glove on 3 dpns using the 4th as the free needle it appeared to me that the wrong side of the work was inside of the 3 dpns [if that makes sense!] and the right side was to the outside. Anyway that bit is fine, the problem is the thumb, if I try and knit it the same way as I did the main part I keep getting garter stitch instead of stockinette stitch as I should get for just knitting every stitch. Would be so grateful for someone's help:??
