I've just started out on my very first pattern (yay!) and decided that a pair of mittens would be a sensible place to start! I've managed to get the ribbing section done and have now come across the following instructions:
To shape thumb:
Next row - K32, turn, cast on 2 sts
Next row - P14, turn, cast on 2 sts
Work on these 16 sts for 16 rows, ending on a P row.
There are a total of 50 stitches and I have done the K32 and cast on my 2 stitches but what do I do with the rest of the 18 stitches that are left on the other needle?! Do I keep knitting until the end of the row? The pattern just states 'next row' - someone please help this drowning beginner!!
Any advice is much appreciated!!
