So I’m doing something similar with the thumbs again (like on Unwavering). You make extra stitches to make room for the thumb, but instead of using the stitches you made, you grab the ones next to it.
This is surprisingly hard to describe. It would be ever so much easier if I could just sort point and wave. For now, we’ll press one of our trust hand forms into service.
It looks awfully pretty. It makes the hand feel all lovely and organic and swoopy.
Plus I keep wanting to experiment with it, which is always a good sign!
