Hello everyone, I’m new here so please forgive any poor forum conduct. I’m knitting a mitten pattern (my first) I found online at http://www.ancient-tree-hunt.org.uk/NR/rdonlyres/9C07936D-6349-4EB5-AD30-257C14219730/0/3972athmittens.pdf
I’m at the thumb and I can’t seem to figure out the directions, they are as follows. (I’ll post it in two parts)
I think I understand what the turn means but I’m knitting on three needles (with a fourth free one to knit with so maybe that means I’m knitting on four?) and that’s halfway through the stitches on one of them. When I turn that leaves me with the yarn I’m knitting with on my left hand needle. Won’t I just start making a tube if I start knitting back? Do I need to introduce a fifth?
The next row says to:
Cast on 1 stitch then purl, cast on stitch plus next 13 stitches, turn
I don’t understand if the directions are saying cast on 1 stitch and then purl that same stitch or the next one? And then I don’t understand what “plus next 13” means.:doh:
Please if anyone can bring me some clarity it would be so so appreciated.
Thanks so much! I hope its clear.
PS- I’m only knitting in one color, in case you go check out the pattern, the color changes don’t matter for me.
