Can someone help me figure this pattern out? THis is my first set of mittens. Thanks! Oh, by the way, I have 30 stitches on the needle.
[color=darkred]Divide for Thumb
1st Row: Knit 18 st, cast on 1 st then turn work round and leave remaining 12 st unworked (does that mean turn it around so that the 12 st are on my right and the 18 st (plus one casted on) that I just worked are on the left?–if so, I did that)
2nd Row: Knit 8 st, cast on 1 st then turn work round and leave remaining 11 st unworked (similar to the row above–did it)
Working on centre 9 st only work 8 rows more in garter stitch.(HUH???)[/color]
Okay…WAY confused on that part. If I turned my work around a second time for row 2 I have 20 st on my needle on the left hand side. How do I work just the center 9?? Or am I supposed to be working the center 9 st of the 11 st on my right needle?
I am just so confused! I could really use some help. If I am confusing you I am sorry.
