Read this:
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting message board digest with the latest knitting pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

So you are knitting three flaps - one for the thumb that you will sew its two little side edges together and one each for the back and front of the hand and then you will seam them to each other down the side of the hand - one side with be a 6 row seam and the other will be the full length of the mitt.

Just try to do exactly what it says, even though it might not make sense...a holding needle is just a needle you keep those sts. on while you work the next thing..the thumb. when done...you pick and knit those 18 sts you saved on the holding needle, and next holding needle... then you k 1 row, and p 1 row..do ribbing. Last Bind off. Hope it helps, sometimes you need to hear things a different way.
Just take it slow till you get it.

If you use some spare yarn or small stitch holders for those 2 sets of 18 stitches then knitting the 14 stitches will be easier.
Or just leave one set of 18 stitches on each of the needles you are using, but don't work them while you are are working on the 14 sts.

Do just what the instructions tell you to do. Knit the 18 sts and place them on a stitch holder from the right needle. Knit 14 sts, these are now on your right needle, and take the 18 sts off of your left needle and place on holder. You then only have the 14 sts to work on. You will put the others back on the needles as you need to work them.

The stitches that are on the holding needle are worked later. The instructions are first for making the thumb. Knit 1 row, purl 1 row then work k2 p2 ribbing for 4 rows then bind off. Then the directions say to pick up and knit 18 stitches from the holding needle. This pattern has you working the top and the palm of the glove separately then sewn together. Once your finish the 1st 18 stitches you then pick up and knit the second set of 18 the same and the 1st. If you use scrap thread to hold the 18 stitches you first need to transfer them from the scrap to a needle before knitting them.

I think she is confused about the 14 stitches. You only work on the 14 stitches between the two holding needles for the thumb and leave the other stitches on the holding needle until it says to work them, for now, only work the 14 stitches until the thumb is completed then proceed with the pattern..

You will not work the rows on the holders until AFTER you are done with the thumb section. You work on the thumb until it is done. The instructions will tell you what to do then.

Aren't the stitches you put on the holding needle still attached to the ones still on the needle? I don't understand instructions like this either. If still attached, doesn't the attached yarn get strung out somehow? I can't quite feature how that works.

They are still attached, but they are worked later. You do the thumb first and bind it off...then you start working around with the stitches you have on holding needles (or strung on threads). See..these stitches are put on 3 or 4 needles and then knit in round for the hand part.
For instance if you do a glove each finger is worked separate, this only has a thumb, so you just do it, then pick up the stitches from holders and knit them circularlly, because you are done with the thumb...I hope that sounds right.

You are absolutely correct, Becky Joe. I think it is very plain. I hope we were able to help the lady and not make her lose interest.
