I’m trying to make a pair of fingerless mittens and the pattern says to “drop a stitch.” Looking at the photo on the pattern, it looks like this is where the thumb is supposed to go through. I’ve been searching online trying to figure out how to do this correctly and I’m still confused. One site says to wrap the yarn around the needle two or three times and then knit like normal. Another site’s video says to just drop the stitch off the needle and let it fall and pull it down.
What is the right way to do this?
