Hi everyone! I’m new here. I’m knitting my mom a pair of mittens and I’ve gotten to the part where you knit the thumb gusset and I have a couple of questions about it. I’m using size 7 DPNs and worsted weight yarn.
- It says “Set up round: m1,k1, m1, PM, knit to end [2 sts inc]” This is continuing on the fabric that I knitted for the cuff, correct? Also, what does PM mean?
- Then it says for rounds 1 and 2 to knit and round three to m1, knit to marker, m1, SM, knit to end of round. What does SM mean? And if I have more stitches on one needle to mark the BOR instead of a regular marker, is that what I knit to?
- After that it says “Worsted weight: work rounds 1-3 a total of 5 times, 13 sts between BOR and marker”. What does it mean by 13 stitches between BOR and marker?
Thanks for the help!
