I am attempting a big knit, i wanted to make a mermaid tail but have never knitted on 3 needles and finding it hard any help to understand the pattern will be greatly appreciated. [/COLOR][/B]
Divide for the mermaid fins. Thread the waste yarn onto the yarn needle and slip half the stitches to the waste yarn to work later. Divide the remaining stitches evenly over three needles.
5 [COLOR="Magenta"][B]I have 60 in total so have placed ten each on 3 needles[/B][/COLOR]
Knit the first round [COLOR="Magenta"][B](is a round classes as all 3 needles together or each needle?),[/B][/COLOR] placing a marker at the beginning of the round and at the halfway point [COLOR="Magenta"][B](does that mean the halfway point would be on the third 2nd needle)[/B][/COLOR]. Knit two stitches together, knit to the next marker, knit two stitches together, slip the marker,[COLOR="Magenta"](what does this mean)[/COLOR] knit two stitches together, knit to two stitches before the end of the round, then knit those two stitches together. Knit three rounds without shaping. Repeat the last four rounds until you have less than five stitches remaining.
[B][COLOR="Magenta"]I am so confused, how do i even start which needles to i use to start my knitting is the first needle with 10 ten stitches and then use a fourth needle or do i pick up the second needle with other set of ten on it?
So sorry if this is confusing please please please help me.[/COLOR][/B]
