If you need to review any of the Butterfly Kisses KAL lessons, a complete list of tutorial links is available on the KAL Introduction page. My thanks to Skacel for providing me with the HiKoo Sueño Tonal yarn and addi Natura dpns for this KAL. These products are available locally at many yarn shops and online at Makers' Mercantile.
Lesson 7: Knit the Thumb
Some people feel like they are all thumbs when it comes to knitting the thumb of a mitten or glove. This tiny section of work is often prone to gaps and holes unless you properly pick up stitches across the gap at the hand.
Pattern(If you would like a printable copy of the entire pattern, Butterfly Kisses is available in my shop.)
Divide held thumb sts evenly across 3 dpns. Join yarn, pick up 2 sts across the gap and knit around remaining gusset sts. Continue knitting all sts for 1 1/2 inches or until thumb reaches the base of thumbnail. BO.
