Hey PetStoreGirl, your pattern should tell you to increase stitches that will be used to make the thumb. If it doesn't maybe try another pattern? Good luck, look forward to seeing your finished project on here.   Kiss

If you post a few of the rows where you're stuck, we can talk you through it. There's usually a part that mentions 'thumb gusset' which is increasing stitches at the base of the thumb where the hand is wider. Then after you inc to X sts, you put them on a stitch holder and work on the hand part, going back to the thumb later.
