I am terribly confused as to how to add a stitch on the thumb gusset using the backward loop method. The directions say "Transfer thumb stitches to waste yarn (got that),cast on one extra stitch in the gap (backward loop method) on the SECOND needle. But when I try to add the stitch using the backwards loop - and magic loop - is the second needle the front one or the back one?? And how on earth do you add the stitch without leaving a long strand between the two needles?
I am a very slow learner - and beginner – and would greatly appreciate any assistance. I have searched the web for a video on this and have been unsuccessful. THANK YOU so much for any help you may provide. Kruddy
