Oh-I don't know if I can help, but instructions like that are obnoxious! I sympathize.

What pattern are you using? If you can provide a little more information about what the pattern says for the right side, I can try to help decipher what you need to do for the left :)
I've done mittens and gloves before, once you get the hang of it, you'll have no problem!

I've made gloves before and the only difference was that the thumb gusset was made on the last needle insead of the first.
For your pattern is's sayingyou should work untill the last six stitches when you are ready to start the thumb instead of starting it at the beginning of that round.
Let me know if this helps.

I agree with psquidy. In fact, you can knit the thumb gusset on any needle you want... just be sure you arrange the thumb so that it is on the left side of the palm when you start the fingers, instead of the right side (looking at the palm).
