You need to pick up the stitches at the base of the thumb to avoid a hole and to make sure you have enough stitches.

Look for the Picking Up Stitches video--that should help.

Oh, I am glad I when searching if anyone asked something that I was having a problem with. Hopefully when I get to the thumb part, I'll be able to do it, I can't mess up in the gloves, even though it's my first time, I don't want to start over.
