I'm attempting to knit a ski mask/stocking cap from an old magazine (1965 edition). The pattern is vague in its directions. I'm supposed to use 4 #5 DPN's. The pattern starts off by stating: Cast on 102 stitches and work in k3p3 ribbing for 3". I joined this--pattern didn't state--I just assumed you do that. Then, the pattern states to knit 3 rounds evenly, placing a marker at the beginning of the round. Question 1: Am I correct in joining the ribbing at the beginning?
This is a ski mask that can be folded if not needed as a ski mask and used as a plain stocking cap
Next part: Shaping the chin: Pattern states to k 24, turn, p 23, turn. K22, turn. Continue working 1 st less each time you turn until last row is p 11, turn.
On the part for shaping the chin, do I work on just 1 needle like you do for a sock? After k 22, turn--what do I do?
Hope this makes sense.
