so i'm making the ringwood gloves, and i seem to be having issues with the main stitch pattern, which goes like this:

Round 1: Knit.
Round 2: [K1, p1] to end.
Round 3: Knit.

however, the photos on knitty look (to me) like round 3 isn't being worked at all, and we're just supposed to work rounds 1 and 2 over and over.

i've knitted up a few rounds the way the pattern tells me to, and it doesn't look like the photos. it just looks like i have an extra K row in there.

has someone else made these? how did you do it? even if you didn't, what do you think, o hive mind? am i just being a total idiot for some reason? i've had a look on ravelry, and i can't find anyone who's having my particular crisis. and i don't really want to go any further until i figure this out, because i'm supposed to be placing the thumb gusset now, and i'm about to smash my knitting a la pete townshend, argh.

It seems like every time I knit a pair of mittens or gloves, I end up with a gaping hole in the thumb gusset. Picking up more stitches in surrounding stitches helps, but doesn't solve the problem (maybe I'm not picking up enough?) and sewing it shut looks ugly. Help?
