Theyre basically increases and then holding those stitches for later. Any time knitting creates an unusual shape it can be scary but it shouldnt. A thumb gusset is a simple way to create some nice shaping and its truly a simple method. The thumb gusset gusset is a tailoring term, and it specifically means a triangular piece of fabric thats used to shape or size a piece of clothing. In this case, the gusset is the little triangle that fits around the heel of your hand below the thumb. Mittens with a thumb gusset are more fitted, as they match the shape of your hand. hand-knit mittens, gloves, and fingerless mitts are wonderful, but what about that thumb gusset? Inevitably, theres a hole left where the thumb joins the body of the mitt or glove, and you have to take the extra step of closing it up with a needle and yarn. Minimum hole size for sheet metal while placing the holes in your drawing please keep in mind that, you should not make holes small enough to break the tool. As you reduce the size of the sheet metal hole, smaller size punches will be required. If the size of the punch becomes too small it may break during operation.

For my top down mittens im going to build the thumb gusset in reverse. First you place stitches on the hand on a holder for the top of the thumb hole. Next you cast on many stitches for the bottom of the thumb hole. One way is to select a stitch that starts the gusset and increase a stitch on either side of it for 3 stitches total. When using a punch press the diameter of a hole should always be equal to that of your tooling and you should never use a tool whos diameter is less than that of the materials thickness.
