I’m working on my first pair of gloves and I’m stuck on what to do with the the following instructions. I can understand except for the part below the “Commence Thumb Gussett” where it says pat. 22. I think I’m suppose to follow the first 22 or the last 22 stitches of the pattern rows from part 1 but I’m not sure. I’m confused because part 2 has 7 rows but I don’t know what rows from part 1 to follow. If rows 1-4 in part one are all part of comprise the patt then how do I know which row I’m supposed to follow? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here’s part of the patter below:
R. H. GLOVE: Cast on 40 sts. and work 1-1/2 ins. in k. 2, p. 2 rib, beg. the 1st row with k. 2. Inc. into the 5th and 15th sts. on the last row (42 sts.). Now work as follows:–
1st row: P. 22, k. 20.
2nd row: P. 20, k. 22.
3rd row: (K. 2, p. 2) 5 times, k. 2 (22 sts. to patt.), then k. to end.
4th row: P. 20 (p. 2, k. 2) 5 times, p. 2 (22 sts. to patt.).
These 4 rows comprise the patt., and are repeated throughout for back of hand while the palm, thumb and fingers are worked in st.st.
COMMENCE THUMB GUSSET:
1st row: Pat. 22, k. 1, k. 3 times into next st., k. to end.
2nd row: P. 22, patt. 22.
3rd row: Patt. 22, k. 1, k. twice into next st., k. 1, k. twice into next st., k. to end.
4th row: P. 24, patt. 22.
5th row: Patt. 22, k. 24.
6th row: P. 24, patt. 22.
7th row: Patt. 22, k. 1, inc. into next st., k. 3, inc. into next st., k. to end.
Thank you so much for your time in helping me!
