Hi, I’m new to the forum and was really hoping someone could help me with the thumb on my mittens!
I’ll explain - the pattern is for 2 normal needles and I’ve done the wrist and thumb (to an extent).
To make the gusset and thumb I had to cast a stitch and then turn to make the thumb shape.
It now says to cut yarn and thread through rest of stitches, draw up and fasten off, join thumb seam (but I have half the thumb on one needle and half the thumb on the other??!) (these stitches are the increases on the thumb actually??!) and does this mean [I]only[/I] the thumb stitches?
The only way it looks like a mitten is if I put the needles side by side.
There are no instructions to put stitches on holders, so I have what looks like half a mitt on each needle.
Even if I thread end of yarn through rest of thumb, what do I do with the rest of the stitches - half of which are on one needle and half of which are on the other?? I am so stuck!!!
The instructions say (after joining the thumb seam) With rs facing, pick up and knit 2 stitches from the base of thumb and knit to end.
Thanks in advance for any help with this…:notworthy:
