A note about stitch increases

This is just for anyone like me who hasn't attempted gloves before 'cos I just did something very silly without thinking. I started working the increases for the thumb (M1) by using the 'increase in the front and back of a stitch' method without really thinking what I was doing. Of course I ended up with holes and had to redo a couple of rows. DOH!

So, just a reminder to use the 'loop' method (where you pick up the loop between the stitches and work into the back of it) so that the increases are seamless.

Thank you, I knew some work better for one thing and not another. I am not that far yet so I had not given it any thought. too much mom on my mind I think.
