This is the pattern. I will take your advice on the 3 sts but actually I think more like four or more for the thumb. I guess I will play with it. It was looking so good until I got to this part now I don't have a clue how it will turn out.
Finished Measurement: One size approximately 7”
around when flat. Wrister will stretch to fit most women.
Red Heart® With Love™: 1 skein 1816 Waterlily.
Knitting Needles: 5.5mm [US 9].
GAUGE: 24 sts = 4”; 22 rows = 4” in ribbing. CHECK YOUR
GAUGE. Use any size needle to obtain the gauge.
Cast on 38 sts. Knit 1 row. Work in ribbing as follows:
Row 1 (Right side): K2, * p2, k2; repeat from * across.
Row 2: P2, * k2, p2; repeat from * across.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 for ribbing until piece measures 2”
end Row 2.
Divide for thumb (Right side): Keeping continuity of ribbing,
work across first 26 sts, bind off next 2 sts, work to end.
Next Row: Work to bind-off, cast on 2 sts, work to end.
Work even in ribbing until piece measures 8” or desired
length. Bind off all sts in ribbing loosely.
Work same as for Right Wrister EXCEPT work Divide For
Thumb Row as follows: K10, bind off 2 sts, work to end.
Sew seams. Weave in ends.
