Okay, I’ve never knitted gloves before. I’ve done plenty of fingerless mittens, but never gloves. Anyway, I’m knitting the Cigar Gloves for my dad as a Christmas present and I’m already confused. I searched through every post on here about gloves I could find and no one had the same question as I do. Here we go:
K6, place next 22[24, 26] sts on waste yarn, CO 2, rejoin round and k to end of round. 14[14, 15] sts.
K 5[6, 7] rounds (or until work reaches bottom of first knuckle).
BO very loosely.
Isn’t there a different between “placing on waste yarn” and “knit with waste yarn” (i.e., the thumb hole for Knitty’s “Fetching”)? Is it the same as placing those stitches on a holder? If so, how am I supposed to knit 7 more rounds if I have two separate portions of my stitches sectioned off and on hold? I’m just incredibly confused about this waste yarn for the thumb hole and fingers portion. Any help would be immensely appreciated.
