Hi, I am having trouble understanding a pattern that is in an Aldi so crafty wrist warmer kit I was given for Christmas.
It’s knitted on a normal pair of needles, and for the Thumb hole I have to rib so far in, then - move the next 8 stitches onto a stitch holder then backwards cast on another 8 stitches…then I assume I carry on the hand tho the pattern doesn’t actually say anything else after this.
When I try to do this I get yarn stretching from the right needle over to where I have to cast on…which is also tight as the stitch holder is thinner than the needles so how that works I’ll never know… please is there a better way to understand how to do this. I’ve tried without much success to get help elsewhere but I still can’t get past this part.
Part of me says to cut off to cast on then cut off again to carry on the row but can it be done without all that and having loose stitches in the middle of the row? Is it a possible option to rib those 8 stitches then cast 8 onto the right needle then slip them to the holder to carry on without cutting the yarn?
Thank you for any help I have been stuck all day and evening trying to figure this out
