I am making basic mittens. I have knit 3 inches of K2P2 on 3 double pointed needles. The next step says
Divide sts for palm: 16 sts on #1 needle
8 sts on #2 and #3 needles.
st st for 1"
After I divide the stitches do I continue working on the round for 1 more inch? and then what do I do next?
The pattern says:
Thumb gusset: for right mitten K 1 sts
for left mitten, K 13 sts
For both, place marker, M1, K2, M1, place marker, finish rnd
I do not understand how to do this. Could someone explain?
