OK so I decided to try knitting a couple of mittens.
Using 6mm needles, cast on 28 sts, work 10 rows stocking st
Change to 7mm needles, work a further 20 rows stocking st
SHAPE THUMBHOLE -
1st row - K1, cast off 5 sts (thumbhole), knit to end.
2nd row - Purl to last st, turn, cast on 5 sts, turn, P1
Work 15 rows stocking st.
OK - so I'm confused about the instruction in "2nd row" above - do I purl to the last st AND PURL IT or LEAVE IT?? cast on 5 sts, turn, P1.
