I'm a fairly new knitter and I'm about to attempt my first big knitting project. However, I'm a bit confused on the beginning of the pattern.
It says to cast on 8 sts evenly. For row 1: *knit 1, m1, repeat from * to end of row. Join round. Row 2: Knit all sts in the round.
Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but am I supposed to knit before joining the round??? And if I'm casting on 8 sts...does that mean its only 2 sts to a needle?
