I am making a hat and the instructions said at the beginning to cut a 50in piece of yarn and set aside. I made the ear flap section and am now at the forehead section. I do not understand the instructions.
Using set aside piece of yarn held to edge of knitting (this will provide the second "tail" needed for the cast-on), CO 34 sts using the Old Norwegian method.
I know how to do the Norwegian cast on. I am confused about the yarn being held to the edge of the knitting????
