What you do to the stitches depends on the pattern, but since it's written that way I assume you're ribbing? If so you knit the knit stitches and purl the purls.

Each stitch has two sides. One side...

Welcome to KH!

What pattern are you using? The way some yarns are spun can have an effect on the way the stitch slants and may also cause the pattern to be skewed I think.

Most bind offs and cast...

I think any glove pattern would work. Just don't knit a few fingers or knit them to the length you need if the fingers are partial.

I don't know about the math. I just make a 4" swatch and count the stitches.:shrug: Are you using a different yarn weight than the pattern suggests because that can make you're gauge completely off.

It looks like you're creating a design element in that row. A YO, k2tog will create an eyelet. Give it a try. It often makes more sense once you start.
