I am a brand new knitter and trying to muddle my way through a pattern for “IMitt” mittens. While they don’t look perfect, I am pleased with how I’ve done so far. BUT, now I’m stuck. The mittens have a buttonhole opening for the pointer finger so you can poke it through to use touchscreen devices. Here are the instructions:
“K13. slip 1 stitch as if to purl, bring the yarn fwd between the needles & leave it there, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, pass the first slipped stitch over the 2nd slipped stitch.” It repeats this for 5 stitches - I assume this is just binding off 5 stitches. From there it says “Put the 5th stitch back onto the left hand needle, [COLOR=“DarkRed”]reversing it. Reverse the last stitch on the right hand needle.”[/COLOR] [COLOR=“Black”]I don’t understand in the least bit what this means and trying youtube or a couple knitting books has not proved helpful in getting me to understand the whole reverse part.[/COLOR] Then it says to “make 5 firm backward loops over the right hand needle.” And, the last part I don’t understand, “Work three more rows.” Does that mean I do the same exact thing for 3 more rows, or something else?
Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can provide!!
