I’m following a pattern for Mikado Ribbon Fingerless Gloves and have had some difficulty trying to understand the author’s steps.
The part that I can’t get my head around is the thumb gusset. From what I’ve read online, thumb gussets are “growths” that are eventually separated from the main work, becoming a thumb. What I’ve seen online shows the gusset ending up horizontal, along with the main work. In looking at this pattern the thumb looks like it was attached to a vertical hole in the work.
I’m also unsure whether I’m supposed to do the gusset work on the first stitches, then do the cabling like normal and “knit to end of row” for each gusset round, or if the gusset is completely different.
I hope all of this makes sense… If not I’ll try to clarify.
