Fingerless Mittens - Need Help Reading A Pattern

by Anonymous Knitter

Question I am trying to knit fingerless mitts from a pattern I got on the net. I am stuck on row 13. I am writing the last 3 rounds in the hopes that someone can tell me where to go from here:

rnd 9 k19, p1, k6, p1, k8, m1, k3, m1, k8
rnds 10-11 k19, p1, k6, p1, k21
rnd 12 k19, p1, fc6, p1, k8, m1, k5, m1, k8

Cont in this manner inc just inside markers every 3 rnds and twisting cable every 6 rnds, until there are 13 sts bet markers for thumb gusset (rnd 21). transfer these 13 sts to stitch holder or waste yarn.

rnd 22 k19, p1, k6, p1, k8, co1st, k8 = 44 sts

i am done with 12 but do not know where to go from here!!!! HELP i really like these mitts!


First off, Congratulation on making it through the first 12 rows. That's a pretty good start.
I looked at the pattern you gave and knitted the sample, here what I came up with. I'm going to write it row by row so that you can follow.

Rnd 13-14: knit the knitted sts and purl the purled sts

Rnd 15 (thumb inc): work the pattern to the first marker, sm (slip marker), M1, k7, M1, sm, work to end of rnd.

Rnd 16-17: knit the knitted sts and purl the purled sts.

Rnd 18 (work the cable and inc thumb): k19, p1, work 6 sts cable as in row 12, p1, k8, sm, M1, k9, M1, sm, k to end

Rnd 19-20: k the knitted sts and p the purled sts

Rnd 21: (thumb inc) work to first marker, sm, M1, k 11, M1, sm, k to end of rnd.

Rnd 22: k19, p1, k6, p1, k8, slip 13 sts between the markers off to waste yarn, CO 1 st, k8 = 44 sts

Hope this helps and thank you for visiting and submitting your question.

Happy Knitting!
