Please Help Turn Cast on for 2 needle mittens pattern


I am a beginner knitter and am having trouble with a pattern for mittens that came with my yarn. What does turn cast on 1 stitch mean and how do I do that? Is it simular to make one or do I do a single cast on stitch?
Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you

can you give us a little more of the pattern, like a couple lines before and after where you're stuck.
I'm thinking that if you've done the wrist part and you're ready to start the thumb you'd turn your work to do the next row and then cast on however many they want you to for the thumb.

They want you to k27 then turn your work and cast on 1 then purl 13 (count the caston stitch as one of the 13 you purl) then turn again and cast on one again and then k14 including the latest co.

did that help?

How do I cast on in the middle
Do I cast on as I would at the beginning of the project or is a make one a cast on stitch?

It depends how you cast on at the beginning. If you used the double cast on (aka long tail cast on) you can't use that type mid-row. You can, however, use any of the single cast on methods decribed here. Backward loop, cable cast on, or knit-on cast on.

I used the double cast on method at the beginning I like that one because it looks more neat than the single. So I guess I will use the single cast on method. Thank you for your help.

Using the double cast on at the beginning is just fine - I hope you didn't think I meant that. I always use double cast on unless otherwise called for. It's just that mid-row you have to use a single cast on.

Hope you get it figured out!
