Hello! I'm currently working on a pair of fingerless gloves. I'm working on the thumb gusset. My next set of instructions is as follows; K2, CO 5 sts using the backwards loop cast-on, put 9 sts on holder for thumb, and pattern to end.
My question is: what end do I insert my "holder" into first? Would it be the K2 stitches, followed by the 5 CO sts, then the two sts from my left needle (making it a total of 9 sts)? Or would it be the opposite - start with the two sts from the left needle, then the other 7 sts (K2 stitches, followed by the 5 CO sts).
