This is my first knitting project (so far I have only been practicing). I am doing the free sheepy sack pattern on the Sheepy Time website.
Anyway, I have my gauge, have cast on the required number of stitches, then it says "place a marker and join, being careful not to twist" then you continue to K1 and P1.
I am using circular needles for the first time too. So my question is how do I place my marker and join?
I know you just put the marker on the end of the needle, right? What does it mean by join?
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give!
