I am new to knitting and have just completed a scarf. I decided to move on to mittens but I can't figure out what the pattern wants me to do.
After doing 6 rounds of 2x2 ribbing. it says:
Welt: Knit one decrease round as follows: k2, k2tog,k18,k2tog,k16-38 sts rem, then purl 3 rounds.
I know what k2 and k2tog are but what does "k16 - 38 sts rem" mean?
To me the knitting isn't hard, it's figuring out the patterns
thanks for any help!
