I’m a relatively new knitter but the lady at the knitting store I go said I could make these gloves, they’re super simple, she’ll show me how, blah blah blah. The problem is, I don’t have time to go back there and have her show me how to make the tumb gusset and I’m stuck and I hate being stuck.
So here’s the pattern:
[I]Start thumb gusset. Continue working in pattern as established as you make the thumb gusset.
Next round: m1, place gusset marker, work as established to end.
Rounds 1 and 2: work 1 round as established (no increases)
Round 3: m1, work to gusset marker, m1, slip marker, work to end of round as established.[/I]
Okay. I understand how to m1 (“make 1” or “lifted increase”). But the phrasing on the first couple steps is weird – do I m1 on round 1 or do I wait until round 3? Shouldn’t it have just said, “Round 2: Work as established to end”? Also, just to verify, I knit all stitches between the gusset markers and work everything else in my established pattern, right?
Thanks, knitting community! I know you’ll be able to help. =)
