Hi ya’ll! I have decided to try a new pattern for mittens. I am stuck where it shows that I need to: Pick up and k 2 sts at base of thumb. I have already finished the thumb to include sewing the seam of it. I am at the point where I will be knitting the rest of the pattern. Thanks!
Welcome to the forum!
What is the name of the mitten pattern?
Here is a video for picking up sts to complete the thumb after the mitten is finished. It sounds like you are working the opposite, picking up sts to complete the mitten after the thumb is complete. The idea of picking up sts and avoiding holes is similar. See if this helps.
Awesome video. Thanks for posting
