I know this is a silly question, I should've known this by now, but in knitting the Cupcake Mittlets I have got to the point where I have continued on in the "Left Lace Pattern" but when it says "Work in this manner" does it mean the whole row stitches or just the repeat pattern?

Also, when continuing in pattern I go through all 15 rows with even row knitting included until I get 50 stitches...I've kind of got lost along the way somehow, especially since I dropped a few stitches which I then took out 4 rows to start fresh (much more difficult to see those tiny stitches for me) so now that I am starting fresh again 4 rows behind, just wanted to verify if it was correct how I had been proceeding.

Work in this manner means the whole row (not a well-written pattern when they use "row" for "round") - this is so that you continue to do the increases for the thumb. So row 9 will be work lace pattern to last 9 stitches ...

Yes you work through all 16 (don't forget your last knit row to complete the pattern) rows as you incorporate your increases.

Thank you so much for the quick response. I haven't worked with dpns on too many projects. Also, the way I have been doing it is that it is continually changing how I put the stitches on my needles ( as when I have a k2tog I have to take stitches from last needle, etc). So will I need to have the amount of stitches on each needle ? will it really matter until I take the 15 stitches from third needle for stitch holder. Somehow I kept getting close to 50 stitches but not quite..guess I just need to keep on " keeping on" ha!

It doesn't really matter how many stitches are on each needle as long as it is comfortable to work with, although this pattern does specify 10/20/10 to start with, which may make doing your lace pattern easier.

I'm sorry, I should've given more info regarding the pattern. I will try to include picture, we'll see if it works, if not it is from Ravelry by Shantha Ramachandran. Thank you for asking.

Not what I expected when I saw the name of the pattern. Your color choices evokes cupcake to me
