I’ve lurked here for a bit and I hope someone can help me- I’ve posted this question at 2 other sites and have been ignored
I’ve been knitting these WW2 era "trigger gloves."I made the first glove just fine, but I’m a little confused about the instructions for the fingers of the 2nd glove.
When you begin the 1st finger of the 1st glove you “Slip the last worked 10 sts to a free needle, with another needle k the next 7 sts (the sts right over the 5 cast-on sts, and 2 sts more); slip remaining 43 sts to a thread (to be held for the other 3 fingers), cast on 5 sts to the second needle. Divide these 22 sts on 3 needles, work round and round in ribbing of k 1, p 1, for 10 rounds; bind off, knitting the k sts and purling the p sts.”
but, when you begin the 1st finger on the 2nd glove it states this: “begin the first finger 2 sts before the 5 cast-on thumb sts and also the next 10 sts, cast on 5 sts for inside of finger (22 sts).”
So, does this mean that I stop knitting 12 stitches from the end of the round? I think that’s what it is, but I’m unsure because of the way it was phrased.
Thanks in advance!
