I'm confused. I'm attempting to teach myself to knit. I'm using the web and a book in a kit I found at Walmart by Simplicity. I'm trying to knit a dog sweater. It's pattern 10 Cargo Pocket Dog Coat of the Simplicity "I Taught Myself Knitting" book (more like magazine). Says it's "easy" but I'm beginning to think not so much. I had no problems knitting the collar on down to the leg opening section where I cast off a few stitches where the legs will go. The next pattern section says this:
Note: All leg sections are worked at the same time using separate balls of yarn for each section. Beg with a purl row, work 1 ins in stocking st from cast off sts, ending with RS facing for next row.
So I've created a couple of small yarn balls, but I don't understand exactly where to go from here. Am I leaving the leg sections for now and purl then stocking stitch between the leg openings? Sorry but my book is lacking and I don't know anyone that knits. Can anyone please help me decode this pattern? Thanks!
