I am going to try this pattern http://knitting-and-so-on.blogspot.ch/2014/02/winding-mitts.html
| = marker
R53: s1 k1 place marker k2 place marker k to end
==> Here is my result : xx | xx | xxxxx
R54 (thumb increase row): sl1, k to marker, sm, kfb, k to 1 st before marker, kfb, sm, k to end
==> Here is my result : xxxxx | kfb , kfb | xx
I am not sure why did it say k to 1 st before marker where there is nothing to knit. And it seem like kfb right after the kfb as my above result.
Did I read it correct?
R67: sl1, k to marker, put the 14 sts between the markers on stitch holders or scrap yarn, remove markers, CO2 (with backwards loop CO), k to end (there should be 9 stitches on your needle)
==> I only have 13 sts between the markers., and not sure what did I do wrong here.
