1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with thumb gore needed! on: October 24, 2006 07:23:00 PM
Could somebody help me figure a mitten pattern out?

I'm making the North Star Mittens from the Knit Mittens book.  It's my first attempt at fair isle.  The pattern on the outside is going fine, but it's the thumb gore, knitted in a "Salt and Pepper" pattern (1 stitch main color, 1 stitch contrasting color, repeated) that I can't figure out.  The instructions for the thumb gore read like this: "K1 mc (marking stitch), M1L (maintaining Salt and Pepper sequence), K5, M1R, K2 mc (marking stitches that are the exit from the thumb gore), work Salt and Pepper to the end of the needle."  Then this needs to be done 4 more times

My question is this: if I keep making stitches, how can I keep the pattern to only 5 stitches in between the marking stitch?  Do I just ignore the K5, and instead knit however many are between the two marking stitches?  Also, whenever I get to the M1R, I always get a repeat of color, is that ok, or can I avoid that somehow?

Thanks to anyone who read this far, and double thanks to anyone who can give me some insight!  If there's something that I can clarify, please let me know.
