Hello! I am new to this forum so hello to everyone. I joined because I am completely stuck trying to knit a pair of gloves in Erika Knight’s book [U]Classic Knits.[/U] I did fine up until near the bottom of the left column on page 92, where you knit the main part of the thumb of the gloves. What I am stuck on (and I don’t know if I am reading it wrong or just misunderstanding) is how can I knit the rows in just those 18 or so stitches when my needles are still through the rest of the glove on both sides? Won’t it not be able to stretch that far? Should I remove the needles and put some sort of holder in the side sections?
If anyone had knitted these or tried and can help, please do!! Thank you so much!!
