Fair Isle Fingerless Mitts -- Need Help
Hello there,
I am currently working on a Fair Isle dpn fingerless mitts project and need help with the thumb opening instructions. This is what the pattern says after I have worked the established patterns in the round with 5 dpns:

Thumb opening: Turn and work 10 rows back and forth for thumb opening, ending with a RS row.
Rejoin work in the round; work even in established patterns until mitt measures 7 inches...

I understand about turning and working in rows, but I don't understand how I rejoin the work in the round if I have 10 more rows on one dpn than the other three. Am I totally misunderstanding this?
Most thumb openings I've done ask you to use a stitch holder for a certain amount of stitches and then cast on more stitches to join with the round. I'm so confused. Please help!
