I hate when a pattern seems so simple, then it asks for something that I just can’t envision in my head.
I’m trying to make these mittens.
[COLOR=“Navy”]Cast on 34 sts.
Ribbing K2, P2, across. Continue ribbing for 20 rows. Last Row Inc to 38 sts, 4sts evenly spaced. (Inc to 38 sts.)
Change to larger needle Work st st for 6 rows.
[B]Place marker between middle two stitches. (18 & 19th st) add two stitches, place another marker, Work in st st increasing 2 sts every other Row between marks until you have 14 stitches. Put these 14 on a holder for working thumb later.
Continue working st st adding 2 stitch under thumb once.
Work in st st until total lengthen mitten is 8.5 inches. (Or up to top of pinky finger) [/B][/COLOR]
So, I’m finished up until the bolded part and then I’m lost. It’s asking me to add two stitches to the row already knit??? Or does it mean to knit the next row (er, purl? If I continue st st, my next row should be a purl row) and add two stitches in the middle, using the markers as a guide? If that’s the case, where am I putting the 2nd marker… between the middle stitches of the next row?
I’m so confused LOL
