Technically you can't divide 34 into 3 and get an even number but i remember a while ago a very sweet lady helped me with the same situation but i forgot how she did it. Can someone please help me? The pattern has cables on the side(mitts).

As long as the sts are approximately the same number on each needle, you're good. Later the pattern may tell you how to distribute the sts (for example when you get to the thumbs) but to start, this should work.

Exactly dividing isn't important they should just be fairly close and the cables should not be slit between two. I always make sure each needle starts with a knit stitch myself, but that does depend on the pattern. Use markers if you need to to keep track of what is where. __________________ Jan When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it. NEW!
