Fingerless gloves

by Pauline
(Leicester, England)

I am knitting some fingerless gloves and cannot understand how to knit the thumb gusset.

I am knitting them flat and the instructions tell me to turn the knitting mid-row and cast on 2 stitches, going back to make the thumb.

However, I don't seem to have the same number of stitches as mentioned in the pattern and am not sure if I am doing it right.

I'd really appreciate some help.



and I would really like to be able to help you Pauline, but you haven't given me enough information to be able to.

What is the pattern you are using? It would have been helpful if you had added a link to the pattern or at least the name of it so that I could see if I could get hold of a copy.

Failing that, you could have typed out the instructions for the bit that you are having trouble with. Without that detail I have no idea what you are being told to do.

I also have no idea how you are interpreting the instructions, it could be that the pattern is not written clearly or that you are not fully understanding what the pattern is telling you to do.

You will get an email telling you that this page is now live, please do add some more info using the comment box or send me an email using the form on my contact page and I will help if I can.
