Glove question
I've cast on and started the ribbing, 2 @ time, for Basic Plain Gloves. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...love-pattern-2

When I've completed the ribbing for the cuff the pattern is:

Change to St. St. and inc 1 st at end of round
45 (49,51,55) sts.
Hand and shaping thumb gusset:
Rd 1: K22 (24,25, 27), pm, m1L, K1, M1R, pm, K to end
Rd 2: Knit.
Rd 3: K22 (24, 25,27), slm, m1L, K3, M1R, slm, K to end
Rd 4: Knit

and so on...


I'm thinking that as this is a gusseted thumb that it won't make left and right hands. Is this correct? It seems obvious but the obvious and seemingly obvious trip me up way too often.

Right, I think it's a 'neutral' pattern and the gusset is in the same position on both.

This pattern would be the way to go then. The other kind without the gusset is known as a peasant or afterthought thumb. It gives you a definite left and right glove. But you have to be careful where you put the thumb in with scrap yarn or you will end up with two rights or two lefts. Ask me how I know.

How do you know? Was it two lefts or two rights? I wondered if peasant and afterthought thumbs were the same. For once I decided to follow the pattern as written *gasp* and decided before I risked it, I'd ask. Thanks!

It was convertible mittens. The most beautiful pair you ever saw. It was only AFTER I was done with both that I discovered I had two rights and no lefts. Ouch!
