increasing 2 sts in last round.
Can anyuone help me with this last sentence. Why do I have to join the wool and what is meant by mark end of round.
I tried another pattern yesterday but found the thumb was not in the correct position as I thought it should have been in the centre of the gore.
Hope this makes sense to whoever is reading it. I would love to receive your help.
ps. If you have a simple pattern for child's gloves aged 7, then I would appreciate it. The reason I am knitting the gloves is because I cannot buy a pair of dark grey to match school uniform and she is not allowed to wear any other color. and I now feel I have a challenge to knit them and master them.
Hi Eddie. I'm going to copy your question to the pattern help forum. Have a look there in a little while. I'm sure you will get lots of responses.
