I,m stuck,don't undrestand the directions

I’m making a beer mitt and the directions say "Unravel the next 12 sts,this doesn’t make sense to me HELP PLEASE::

Welcome!
Is it this pattern, size small?

The sts you need to unravel are the first 12sts of the provisional cast on. Did you start with a provisional cast on or one of the other types of cast ons?

hmm. guess I’ll be learning how to do provisional cast on.

but not right now. :wink:

FYI a cast on for socks such as Judy’s Magic Cast on or a backward loop cast on can eliminate the need for unraveling a crochet cast on. When I use it I just hold the second set of live stitches on an extra cable or waste yarn. The loop cast on is loose enough to just work into it. It wouldn’t work well in all cases and I don’t know what I would choose for this pattern.
