I'm having trouble with the thumb opening of a mitten pattern, and I wonder if anyone can help. These are the directions:
Divide for Thumb Opening:
K2, place the next 13 sts on a holder, cast on 3 sts, knit to end of round.
My problem is that after putting the 13 stitches on a holder, I can't seem to cast on 3 more without creating a long strand of yarn across those 13. I took this to a yarn shop and the guy working there couldn't help either. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you for any advice!
