thumb gusset
i have a question about a convertible mitten pattern im working on, could someone please clarify the instructions for the thumb gusset. after the first seven rows the instructions say "Continue in this manner, working the increases as
established every 3rd round 3 times more, then
every 4th round 2(3) times. 16(18) knit sts rem
between the two markers. Work 2 rounds even."

here is the link to the pattern. http://

Continue to do the incs before the first marker and after the second marker, every 3rd row 3 more times, then do them every 4th round 2 or 3 times, depending on which size youre, doing. At that point you'll have 16 or 18 stitches between the markers for the thumb gusset, and work 32 more rounds without decs.

I couldn't get your link to work, so just in case anyone else has trouble
and here's a link to the same gloves in fingering weight yarn for those not so chilly podsters

Two rounds even (without increases) after the thumb gusset shaping is finished.
