I’m making a pair of gloves–my question is where do you pick up stitches (1-2) on the fingers of gloves? The pattern states to pick up stitches at the base of the finger (but which stitch is it)? Also, do you use another needle to pick these up on? The gloves are made on DPN’s. Do you pick up 2 strands or 1 strand? I’m sure this is simple, but I don’t get it. Also, how do you prevent a hole from forming at the finger base?
