Help with pattern for mittens
Hi I'm new to knitting and started with this pattern for mittens(Bernat)You knitt the mitt then cast off and sew top and side seam. I'm stuck on the part where they say
11th Row: K27. TURN Cast on 1 st. P13(including cast on st.) TURN Cast ob 1 st K14. **Beg with a purl row, work 9 rows in stocking st.

When they refer to TURN what do you do at this point.

Usually when you turn in the middle of a row you are doing what is called "short rows". Short rows add shaping.

What part of the mitten are you on? Your comment on the seaming doesn't fit with the short rows...

Do you have a link for the pattern?

Would that be the part where you add a few sts for the thumb maybe?

The instruction to turn on row 11 means to turn the work from the knit side to the purl side, just as you would if you were at the end of a row. Don't worry about the sts that remain on the left hand needle. You'll come back to them later. When you knit back and forth on the 14sts, you're actually making the thumb.
