I started back knitting after 20 something years. So I am a newbie again. I have this pattern for mittens that I am trying to do but I am very lost on the directions for the thumb gusset. I have a co-worker who is a master knitter but I only see her during the week and we are both busy working. Can anyone explain this is simple terms?
Knit 2 rnds, increasing 2 sts evenly spaced on first rnd. [18 (20, 22) sts] [B]thumb gusset[/B] Rnd 1: [B]M1, place marker, knit to end of rnd[/B]. Rnd 2 and all even rnds: Knit. Rnd 3: [B]M1, knit to marker, m1, slip marker, knit to end of rnd.
Repeat rnds 2 and 3 until there are 5 (7, 9) sts before the marker.[/B]
This is the link for a better understanding. I omitted the “www” in case your not allowed to post links.
This is driving me crazy. I am using 4 needles and have the cuff done for one but stopped dead in my tracks over this. :hair:
