I'm interested in trying my first FairIsle knitting project with the "Center Square" hat that is featured on the current issue of knitty.com.
However, in reading the pattern, it tells me to hold two strands of the MC together and cast on 64 stitches. To do this, do I treat the two strands as one strand of yarn or do I alternate and cast on one strand then cast on the other strand?
Then, later on, when I join the CC, am I now working with three strands? Do I drop one of the MC strands?
I'm so confused . . . Thank you so much for your help!
