Winding way mitts- half done

These are pretty awesome. They go pretty quick. I have one done, and am just starting on the other one. I’m making it in a neon yellow that has a tinge of green in it when the light hits it. I have to say that I had to write out the chart so I could check it off, and even then, late at night, I was overthinking it and confusing myself, especially when it got to the cross over parts. I should just save myself the trouble and stop knitting after 10pm. Or knit something that doesn’t require as much brain power.

  1. Love them in the yellow.. I’m working on them now… And am a bit confused on the thumb gusset on needles 2 and 3. I get needle 2 but am confused about needle 3. Where do the increases on needle 3 go?

    • There aren’t increases on the thumb gusset. You can pick up stitches on the part that has already been knitted. The pattern says to pick up 2 stitches per needle. However, when I was figuring this out, I watched a bunch of youtube videos and you can do it this way. You can pick up more than just 4 total stitches in order to not have a big hole. Then on the next row, I knit 2 together to get back to the 4 stitches… and no holes. Then you continue knitting in pattern. I hope that helps!
