I am making cabled fingerless mittens using a free lionbrand pattern (Cashmere Arm Cosies). The pattern is knit flat then seamed, but I’m doing them with DPNs (because I’m not a fan of seaming). I have a question about casting on after placing the thumb sts on a holder. The pattern doesn’t say to do that, but since I’m doing them in the round, I don’t want a gap. My question is, how many do I cast on?
Before putting the sts on a holder the pattern says “Work in pattern to marker, remove marker, k1, place 14 sts on holder, k1…” I’m adding this because I didn’t know if how many thumb sts you have on the holder determines how many to cast on? (If that logic makes sense to anyone else :eyebrow2: ? )
