Gloves Pattern Help
I'm working on the J. Crew style gloves found on this site. I'm up to the part below and need help (It's my first time trying gloves). See [ ] and bold for my specific questions. I guess my main questions are how do you pick up 2 extra stitches? Thanks for the help!

Fingers: Divide 11 stitches for the 1st finger (6 from one side, 5 from the other) [divide these on 3 dps?] --put remaining stitches on waste yarn or stitch holder. Working around on dp needles, pick up and knit 1 st at beg of round (I usually twist that stitch to help avoid a hole), k11, pick up and knit 1 st at end of round--13 sts. Work in rounds till finger meas. 2 1/2". K2 tog on next 2 rounds [how often k2tog?] (since you're working on an uneven # of sts, you'll end up with 1 st, which you knit). Cut yarn, leaving a tail, and thread the tail through the remaining stitches, pulling them closed tightly. Fasten off. Pick up 13 sts from holder for middle finger (7 from 1 side and 6 from the other) [divide these on 3 dps?]. Pick up 2 extra stitches from between fingers as above, and work around on 15 sts for 3". K2 tog next 2 rounds [how often k2tog?], then fasten off as above. Pick up 11 sts and 2 extra stitches for the next finger, work around for 2 1/2", dec [how often?] & fasten off as above. Pick up 9 sts and 2 extra stitches for the little finger, work around for 2", dec [how often?] & fasten off as above.

Thumb: pick up 15 sts from your waste yarn or holder for the thumb [onto 3 dps?], and pick up 2 extra sts as above [how?]. Work around for 2". Dec. & fasten off as above.

With needle & yarn, sew up any holes between fingers, weave in ends. [/code]

Let's see. Whenever you start a finger, divide the stitches on the needles as evenly as you can, I guess. For the pick up and knit, put your needle through the knit portion and loop it through to make an extra stitch.

When it says to knit tog, do it all around to decrease at the tip of the finger.

Do I knit those 11, say, for the 1st finger on 2 or 3 dpns? Do I take the 6 on one side and 5 on other side and divide onto 3 dpns or keep on 2 dpns? Where do I switch from 2 to 3 dpns (if it's 2)?

If I may add a suggestion; rather than even trying to put finger or thumb sts on a st holder, thread a darning needle with contrasting yarn and carefully pull the needle & yarn thru the sts, you will have MUCH more room for working & it won't stretch the sts around the ones on the holder/yarn or ribbon (I use ribbon)
