Am new to knitting and I am making some fingerless mittens. All is going well and it looks very nice!!
But I don't quite understand the instructions for shaping the thumb.
It says k21 and turn. Completed!
Then next row: cast on and p 4 sts, P8 and turn
Next row: cast on and k 4 sts, K to end.
I am I right that I cast on the 4 sts, pearl these, then pearl the next 8 sts next to it and then turn? Visa versa for the k.
The instructions then go on to say work a further 9 rows on these 16 sts. So p8 then k8 etc?
Sorry very new!!! :??
