Thanks Deb!  Dang, that was quick!  Here's the handwritten chart I did, if it helps.

Okay, you are chaining out into space again.   From where you ended with Row 35, work a chain of 14 sts.  You will need one of those chains for the turning, so you skip the chain closest to the hook and single crochet back down the new foundation chain you've just made (13 sc done).  You should now be back to where you finished Row 35.  Those stitches you skipped in Row 35?  You are going to start working them now (like finishing up short rows), like you did in Row 33.  If it helps, ignore "working in rem sts in row 34" - you just need to work the 13 sc into the foundation chain, then a sc into the back loop of the next st, which is how you wind up with a total of 14 sts. 

When you get to row 38, you may need to break it into smaller chunks - the long bit about "working first sc in back lp of next st" through to ""first free sc 3 rows below" is in reference to how you will work the sc2tog.  The point here is about not having a hole (in knitting, this would be the part of the short row where you pick up and knit the wrap with the stitch). 

I have got to get a schematic up for this.  I think it would start to make more sense if you could see what you are supposed to be winding up with.

yeah so, when you are doing the chain, should you be chaining on the end with the thumb or near the end without the thumb?

The end with the thumb.

A picture is worth a thousand words: here's a nearly completed glove, done in two colors so you can see the different sections easily.

That photo was soooo amazingly helpful!!! I went OH I GET IT NOW... I just wanted to point out to anyone doing this project that when the pattern says to sc into a cluster, you should make sure you get all the little yarns that are hanging down, otherwise the lace doesn't work out. I'm probably the only person in the world that wouldn't just follow the simple directions, but thought I'd throw that out there so no one else has half a glove that looks kind of funky but will be worn lovingly as soon as I finish it.

Sorry for bringing back up an old-ish topic but I don't think I should start a new one.  I don't think anyone else is having a problem with this part (I'm just really dumb) but I'm terribly stuck on row 21 of the thumb.  ...........I don't really know what to ask exactly.  I'm just stuck.  : |  I probably just need someone to slap me in the face and reword it or explain it to me.  Thanks!

Okay, let's use the photo posted earlier in this thread.  You "read" this from bottom to top, because you start with the back of the hand and work your way up.  See where the back (in mint green) ends?  That's row 20, where you don't crochet all the way to the end of the row.  You just stop.  With row 21, you are starting the part of the thumb that separates from the rest of the hand, which is why you chain out into space and then start working back down that chain (like you do with a foundation chain), and then into the part of the back of the hand that you worked on in row 20. 

Is that making any more sense?

Ohhhkay, I think I get it now.  It was the chaining out into space part & then getting back down to sc into the rest of row 19 that I was having trouble with.  So, after row 20, I don't turn?  Or do I?
okok, I've got it!  I'm well on my way on thumb now. : D  Thank you very much!
