Having trouble following pattern


I’m very new to knitting and this is my first attempt at reading and following a pattern. Up until now I’ve used youtube video tutorials. I’m following a pattern for fingerless gloves.

It would be easiest to discuss if you could also see the pattern, but I don’t want to share it on here since it is not mine to share. Can I email or text someone about it?

In case it can be answered here without looking at the pattern, here is my issue: it says to increase by 12 stitches to total 60 stitches, and then the next step is just knitting in the round with colorwork. The blocks for the colorwork design only go to 59 (unless I’m reading it wrong) and I’m left with an extra stitch that doesn’t fit the pattern.

Thank you


What is the name of your pattern and the designer or source?

If you think it will help you can post a scan of the first 2 rounds of the chart. Don’t post any more than that due to designer copyright please.

That’s perfect. Thank you for being considerate of the designer’s copyright.
Work sts 1-59, skip the greyed out sts for now and then it looks like the next stitch is 77. That would be your total of 60sts.
What cheerful mitts!

Oooooh!! It makes sense. Yay! Thank you.

They are really sunny gloves!
Good luck with the chart, never used one myself, it looks tricky. Hope it works out well for you.
