Hellooooo. I'm a little new to knitting, and I'm trying to make these mittens, but I'm getting hung up on the thumb gusset.
Here is the link to the pattern: http://www.craftleftovers.com/patter...mossmitten.pdf
I've knit the rib part and the Rnd 1 of the chart. My questions are:
If I'm knitting in the round, won't the gusset for the thumb be covered up?
Oh! I just looked on wiki what a "gusset" was ... so once I'm done working the thumb gusset, there will be a little triangle of stitches, and I'll just leave it hanging while I join the body of the mitten where the place markers are? By jove, I think I've got it.
So that's why I'm increasing so many stitches?
I think I understand, but any reassurance would be very welcome! This knitting thing is tricky....
