hey everyone! hope everyone had a nice holiday.  Smiley  so i just started to teach myself how to knit. i'm pretty good at crochet and thought that i needed a new challenge. so i took on knitting. i know how to do the stitches for the most part. so i went and bought a pattern book. well i'm not to good at reading the patterns yet and i'm half way through this pattern but now i'm totally stuck!  Huh i'm on row 21 of making hand warmers and i'm stuck at the gusset part. the pattern says to knit as established to 4 stitches after cable marker,( i have no idea what work as established means) place maker for gusset, kfb twice, place 2nd gusset marker. k7,p1,k8. well i only have 6 stitches after my cable marker. i have 2 markers to indicate where the cable stops and starts.and even if i increase it still wont be enough for the k7 p1 k8. its for the right side by the way. i'm so stuck. if anyone could help i would appreciate it so much! if i need to write out the whole pattern i will if it will help to understand where i'm at. thanks guys.

'As established' means the stitch pattern that you've set up (established) by working the previous rows which sounds like a cable st. If you only have 6 sts after your cable marker, you may have it in the wrong place or be working on the other hand. You might try reversing the instructions - k8, p1, k7, place marker, kfb twice, place the other marker and work 4 sts until you get to the end of the round - and see if that works out better.
