I’m stuck and hope/pray someone can translate plain english what I obviously can’t see/figure out.
Knitting my first mittens (fingerless - not going overboard on the first ones. haha) and am stuck where it is telling me to remove the thumb stitches to a holder.
I’m knitting on 2 circs. Had the 18 inner hand stitches on one needle and others on first needle. Way I read pattern, and therefore knit, was that the thumb gusset is split between the two needles (first stitches and last stitches of row). I can’t for the life of me figure out how to move them to the “safety pin/holder”. To get my working yarn away from the gusset, to start working the round palm/hand, I would have to knit at least some of them, no? I’m so confused. can anyone help me??
I feel confident, once I figure this out with the wisdom of those who know what they are doing, I can finish this first mitt.
THAT leads to question 2: Knit to match? WHAT??? How do I make a mirror of what I just knit? Knit instead of purl first when I do the chart? How do I do my thumb gusset? Would it be the inner section of each row where I add the gusset increase?
I fear I reached too far with this pattern but I really don’t want to frog and start over and refuse to let it get the best of me… unless it does.
