Pattern for reference: http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki/tulip_gloves_vintage/
So I started this glove pattern on two needles, and it has been so far, so good, considering this is my first pair of gloves.
However, I am stuck on row six in the pattern where the tulip pattern is shaped, where it says to add four stitches, pick up and purl a dropped stitch, and add more stitches to the slipped loop before finally slipping it off. Any way I do the row, a gaping split is left where made stitches were dropped. I have tried knitting the rows afterward to see what it looks like, and the pattern panel does not look like it should.Tired of unraveling the gloves back to the ribbing, as I have already done that once after my first messup, I have tried all possible interpretations on a test tulip with bigger yarn and needles, yielding no results.
Is there something special I need to do with the slipped stitch as I do the p.1, k.1 part? Also, when I pick up the dropped stitch, does the pattern want the needle to pick up from between the 1st and 2nd from the bottom or top? Additionally, do I pick the stitch up from behind the
side facing me (wrong side), or do I pick up the stitch right on the wrong side?
I hope I was clear enough with my questions. I will add photos when I can.
Edit: Photo of real glove in-the-making on right and wrong sides and test tulip on ws, all of them stuck on their respective trouble stitches.
