Please help with mitten pattern

Hello. I have a pattern I found online for mittens. this is the link

Unfortunately I am having a problem when I get to the woman’s size thumb portion. I am having a problem with the decreasing rounds. It seems as though the stitches are off meaning the pattern is short on the number of stitches. I can’t figure it out. It’s only the thumb decrease rows. Can someone PLEASE PLEASE try to help. I’m desperate here haha.I’d just like someone familiar with decrease rounds with Double pointed needles to look at the pattern and see what’s wrong. I would really appreciate it. Thanks:wall:

The pattern seems to be right.
Your problem may be in the [B]sl 2[/B] tog knit wise…so you slip two stitces off your left onto your right without working them.
Then you slip those 12 off and leave them for later
Then you k1 and pass those [U][B]2[/B][/U] stitches that you had slipped earlier over this last worked stitch.
Thus eliminating two stitches
Maybe your only slipping one of the slipped stitches?
It’s a cool pattern. Good luck with it.

hello. I’m sorry for the confusion. the problem with this pattern comes once I am done with the mitten and going to work on the thumb. When I get to the decrease rows when I’m ending the thumb is where the problem comes in. Thanks

This is what the pattern has for decreasing the top of the thumb:

For Both Sizes:
Dec Rnd: (k2, k2tog) 2x (9 sts)
Work one rnd even in St st.
Dec Rnd: (k1, k2tog) 2x (6 sts)
Thread yarn needle and sew up rem 6 sts.
Weave in all ends.

You begin with 12 stitches.
I’d set them up with 4 stitches on each of 3 needles.

On the first dec rnd as given above it says to repeat the decrease 2X but you really decrease 3 times, once on each needle to get from 12 stitches to 9.

Work a rnd even.

The same on the second decrease rnd. It says 2X but you do it 3 times, once on each needle. That will get you from 9 stitches to 6. Then cut the yarn and run it through the live stitches like you would for the top of a hat.

If you have 12 and K2, K2tog, K2, K2tog, K2, K2tog you end up with 9.

Then when you have 9 you K1, K2tog, K1, K2tog, K1, K2tog and that will give you 6.
