I’m still working on a pattern that I asked about a couple of weeks ago. I’m new to glove-making, so a lot of the pattern still confuses me.
The part I’m confused about now is bolded below:
Hand—Round 1—K 4, p 1, k 3, inc. 1 st in next st, k 3, inc. 1 st in next st, k 4, p 1—20 sts on first needle; k 6, inc. 1 st in each of next 2 sts for thumb gore, k 6—16 sts on 2nd needle; k 16 sts of 3rd needle; 52 sts.
Round 2—* K 4, p 1; repeat from * 3 times, k to end of round.
Round 3—* K 4, p 1; repeat from * 3 times; k 6, inc. 1 st in next st, k 2, inc. 1 st in next st for thumb gore, k 6—18 sts on 2nd needle; k 16; 54 sts. Work 2 rounds same as round 2.
Round 6—Cable twist—K 4, p 1, * slip next 2 sts to crochet hook, hold in back of work, k next 2 sts, k 2 sts from hook, p 1; repeat from * twice; k 6, inc. 1 st in next st, k 4, inc. 1 st in next st; k to end; 56 sts. Continue pat. repeating cable twist every 6th round, increasing 1 st each side of thumb gore every 3rd round 5 times more, having 2 sts more between incs. after each successive inc. round; 30 sts on 2nd needle; 66 sts in round. Work 1 round even.
So, when I repeat the pattern , do I repeat Rounds 1-6 but ignore all of the original instructions where it says to increase, and only increase during Round 3? Because if I repeat the pattern and increase where it says to, I will have more than 66 sts.
I’m also confused as to where I should increase. What does “1 st each side of thumb gore” mean?
Final question: What does “having 2 sts more between incs after each successive inc. round” mean?
Again, sorry if these are obvious or dumb questions! I have only ever made scarves and hats before - nothing this complicated, so I’m still learning!
