In this division knit from cuffs to a height of 7 cm and close the first 4 sts of the 1st nd for the thumb slit. For the thumb-to-toe in the next round, strike 4 sts again and continue in rounds.

At the beginning of the 1st and 3rd needle, knit the first two sts covered and at the end of the 2nd and 4th needles knit the last two sts to the right. At the next round in the 3rd needle in the braid 2 x 2 m on the right side zusammenstr together knit 2 x 2 sts on the right side = same number of stitches per needle.
