Ok....you will all be laughing at me. I am a newbie. My dds took a knitting class and because they had problems, I got the "kids knitting" book from the library and taught myself so I could help them. I knitted quite a long ribbed scarf which my mil thought looked beautiful. She is a knitting expert, but lives several hundred miles away. I decided to try to make a sweater for my 2yo ds. It is done in one piece with only finishing under the arms. I have been doing ok until I got to this section of the directions:
Next row (divide for neck opening), knit 39 sts (45, 50), join new ball of yarn, bind off next 7 sts, work rem 39 (45, 50). Working both sides at once, each on a separate ball of yarn, keeping pattern as established, work for 5, (6, 6 1/2) inches MORE, ending on a wrong side row
My mil told me just to knot the yarn on. Is this ok? I am using an acrylic yarn. I was able to bind off 7 stiches, but I am not sure what to do next. I continued down the row k1p1 using two threads instead of one. Is this correct? I just don't understand what "work both sides at once" means.
For further reference, follow the link to the pattern http://margarethubertoriginals.com/newpage2.htm
Please help me!! I am such a newbie :??
