Help deciphering a pattern?
Hi all! Hope no-one minds that my first post on these forums is one begging for help!

I've started teaching myself to knit and (oh so wisely), jumped straight into a pair of gloves. These ones specifically-

I've reached the thumb gusset on the right hand glove and am stuck on the instructions for one particular row-

Moss st. 28, p. 1 (k. 1, p. 1, k. 1) all into next st., p. 1, moss st. to end.

Moss st. 28, I understand. It's the part after that has really lost me.

Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

At this point in the glove, you're going to be making the thumb gusset--adding stitches that will be a the base of the thumb.

After you work your first 28, you'll be increasing in the next stitch by knitting into the next stitch, but don't slide it off, then bringing the yarn between the needles and purling into the same stitch, again without sliding it off, then bringing the yarn to the back and knitting into the same stitch once again before sliding it off. You'll have 3 stitches where you had one.

what ingrid said!

So you do moss stitch for 28, the you pearl a stitch, then the next stitch you do the double increase (the k1, p1, k1 all into the same stitch, just as ingrid described), pearl the next stitch, then the rest of the stitchs in moss stitch. That way you increase your total stitch count by 2.

I have to give you credit for being new to knitting and you're making gloves. I'm new myself so I can't answer your question but i'm sure many of the people here can.

Good luck to you!
