I am a newbie knitter, and am attempting my first pair of mittens. Everything so far is going great (I think), but cannot figure this thumb part out. Here is what it wants me to do:
11th row: K27. Turn. Cast on 1 st. P13 (including cast on st). Turn. Cast on 1 st. K14.
***Beg with a purl row, work 9 rows in stocking st.
Next row: (K2tog) 7 times. Break yarn. Thread end through rem sts. Draw up and fasten securely.
I have done the eleventh row, so at the “beg with a purl row…” am I just turning again, and stocking stitching it for 9 rows?
