AHHH!!!! I am seriously about to start ripping out all my work if I can't figure out how to do this. I'm following this pattern: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html
And I've gotten to this part:
Work one more round, dividing sts between 2 needles, so that they are arranged as they were for the joining round; work ssk over last 2 sts. 17[21, 25] sts on first needle, 16[20, 24] sts on second needle.
Place thumb sts on 2 needles, placing 7[8, 9] sts on each needle.
Continuing with second needle of last round (after ssk), place stitch marker, k first 2 sts of thumb together, k next 5[6, 7] sts of thumb; using another needle, k next 5[6, 7] sts of thumb, ssk, place stitch marker, k first 2 sts of next hand round together, k to end of needle. 44[54, 64] sts.
It's the part in red that I just don't get!!! If anybody has made these or can figure it out I would GREATLY appreciate it!
