new knitter with questions
I'm new to knitting and am working on a pair of mittens. I'm stumped on one of the directions. I'm shaping the thumb and it says to k27 turn, cast on 1 st, P13 turn, cast on 1 st, k14. ** beg with purl row work 9 rows in the stocking st.
Does that mean to just do the 14 stitches for 9 rows to make the top of the thumb? Do I just leave the rest of the mitten on the needles or what.

Yes! You got it!

You can...or if you'd find that too confusing, you can put them on stitch holders or a piece of scrap yarn.

Good Luck!
