How do I knit this, this is a fingerless glove pattern
knit 1 row , purl 1 row.
knit18 stitches and put them on a holding needle, knit 14
stitches and leave them on the needle, place remaining 18
stitches on a second holding needle.
work the thumb= knit 1 row and purl 1 row, then work
k2,p2 ribbing for 4 rows. bind them off.
pick up and knit 18 stitches from holding needle, knit 1
row, purl 1 row. k2, p2 ribbing for 4 rows. bind off.
thanks for any help
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.
