mittens help
OK so I decided to try knitting a couple of mittens.

Using 6mm needles, cast on 28 sts, work 10 rows stocking st
Change to 7mm needles, work a further 20 rows stocking st

SHAPE THUMBHOLE -

1st row - K1, cast off 5 sts (thumbhole), knit to end.
2nd row - Purl to last st, turn, cast on 5 sts, turn, P1

Work 15 rows stocking st.

OK - so I'm confused about the instruction in "2nd row" above - do I purl to the last st AND PURL IT or LEAVE IT?? cast on 5 sts, turn, P1.

Help!

1st row - K1, cast off 5 sts (thumbhole), knit to end.
2nd row - Purl to last st, turn, cast on 5 sts, turn, P1

After you bind off 5 sts and knit to the end, turn your work and purl to the last st. before the bind off. Turn the right needle and cast on 5 sts, turn it back to normal position and purl the last st, which was the K1 from row 1.

Thanks GG - I'll try this now (another example of ambiguous patterns).

And, hey presto, watch me pull a rabbit out of the hat.

It worked - Grumpy's legendary.

It worked? Great! I'll let you in on a little secret...I was guessing. I've only done mittens knitted in the round, these are flat and that threw me. I'm just glad it worked for you.

I would purl the last stitch, turn to cast on, then turn and p1. The p1 is the k1 you did on the row before, before you BO 5.

Oh, you got it. Didn't read all the posts...
