Hi I am making a pair of mittens for my 4yo dd, and almost all went well until I had finished the thumb increases. I put the thumb stitches on a piece of yarn as directed in the pattern, and then it said to cast on some stitches to bridge the thumb.
I did that then somehow the yarn was on the LH needle (magic loop). So somehow I think I turned the knitting and started knitting with the yarn coming from the RH needle so the circle would join and I ended up with a row of purl sticking out. No big deal to experienced knitters but I had a lot of trouble getting back to where I was…
What should I have done?
Also what is the best increase for thumb increases in a mitten?
Thanks for your help.
