Knitting mitten help!
Hello! I'm new here so I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question... but i'm hoping one of you lovely knitters will be able to help me out!
Basically I'm knitting mittens.
The next bit on my pattern says exactly this: (I have 24 sts on my needle at the point)
Shape thumb:
Next Row (RS): K12, turn, cast on 6 sts, p12, turn.
Cont. to work on these 12 sts only, leaving rem 6 sts on needle.
Cont. to work in st st for a further 10 rows.

My brain seems to have completley failed me here. I've knitted in the past and this is my first proper project since starting again but if I do exactly what it says I don't end up with the 6sts she says I should have on the needle?
I'm not sure if I'm just missing the point or what but could someone help me out? I'm so confused right now!
Thank you so much!
