does this mean increase in the knit row, purl a row, knit a row without increase and purl a row then do another increase row and repeat this 5 times?? I tried it once already and my mitten is huge and I havent gotten to the thumb yet!!!
Are these knitted flat and then seamed? If so, they might seem to be larger than they really are anyhow.
I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
