Another mitten question

Okay, now I’m doing pretty good so far. I did end up with an extra stitch somehow so I just k2tog. We’ll see how that turns out. Now I’m on row 9 of the pattern and the written instructions say this:

At row 8 of second cable repeat, split for thumb.

What does this mean? There are 24 rows of the cable pattern, I’m starting row 9 now.

I don’t know if this is enough info for you to help so ask away…

TIA.

OMG :aww: I just figured it out!! Disregard this message.
