I’m a beginner mitten knitter. I found the directions for the gusset confusing. My markers and where I was to put stitches on holder were different. Please advise. I have been slipping the marker each row. Should I have been removing and pM where told? Also…size 10 for the hand is to narrow. I did not see to use anther size after cuff. For us newbies I think we need more explanation. Thx

Hi Maryjean. I know it can be hard if you are just beginner that is why I have made video tutorial that you can follow. Find it after abbreviation section. It is correct to slip markers where it is written PM. You can remove thumb markers in 14th Round. If you are tight knitter take 10 mm knitting needles. Usually 9 mm and super bulky yarn works perfectly together. Let me know if you have other questions.

Thanks..I’ve figured it out, I think. Lol. I’m on my 3 rd mitten. Honestly I’m thrilled you responded. Yes…I will check out the tutorial.. Thanks so much. I’m Using 10 for cast and 13 for mitten hand and 10 for thumb. I’m not a real tight knitter. I had to relax…at 18 I got OA in my thumbs. I started really knitting about a year ago. I Can knit for days. I’m 70. MJ

Great. Can’t wait. I started a mitten..did a side Ssk and knit 2 together decrease. It was perfect…but I can’t duplicate it. Hard to keep which pattern…have too many socks on 9” shorties, while I’m trying to relearn dpns. Anyway thanks again…once it clicks I wonder why I didn’t get it. MJ🤪
