I’m something of a beginner, and was very proud to make a pair of lovely mohair cuffed mittens three-needle style…
However, according to my pattern when I got to where the thumb was to be I was supposed to slip the loops off my needle and hold them with scrap yarn to be taken care of later.
I did this, but then realized that my thumbs were actually a bit higher, so then I made another thumb hole. This is the one I went back and knit into a full thumb. The problem is that I still have the initial thumb stitches held with a piece of scrap yarn, and even though it looks like it should be easy to fix, I can’t make my brain figure out how to join them without knitting a lump.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
