Thumb
Pick up the stitches, using size 6 needles, for the thumb by carefully removing the scrap yarn and placing the stitches on dpns as you do so. It’s easiest to use 2 dpns one for the top and one for the bottom rows. Rearranging onto 3 needles as you knit the first row.
1 ) Knit to the end of the bottom row of the thumb stitches, m1, knit to the end of the top row, m1, join in the round
2 ) k9, k2tog x 5
Bind off, weave in ends.
