Help with Thumb for mittens
Hi Everyone,
I am having trouble with mittens
I have cast on 32 sts and joined for rounds, did a 1 x 1 ribbing for 10 rows and then knit 3 rounds.
Then it reads
Row 1: K1, pm, m1r, k1, m1l, pm, knit to end
Row 2: Knit
Repeat until 9 sts between markers
Move all thumb sts onto a holder CO 1 st and continue to knit for
14 rounds. My first question is, are the thumb stitches the 9 stitches between the markers and if so do I knit the 1st stitch and then put the 9 stitches on a holder and where do I cast on the 1 stitch. I am really sorry if this sounds confusing.

Now I'll skip ahead to when I have to do the thumb. The pattern says to pick up 4 sts where you co one st for the thumb. Knit these 13 stitches for 10 rows. My problem with this is that if I had 9 stitches on the holder and picked up 4 where you co one st. wouldn't that be 14 stitches.
Please help, this is my first mitten
