I'm doing the felted daypack from Interweave - I've completed the base by creating a crochet chain of waste yarn and then knitting on to create 18.5 cm. This is where I'm getting confused. The instructions are:
Sides: With RS still facing, place marker on right needle tip (I did this), and knit 26 sts along side edge of base, pm -- at this point, b/c the RS is facing me, I've got the working yarn to the left. So then, am I literally knitting down the side of the base, making sure I make 26 stitches from the length I created?
Continuing on, it says to pull out the crochet chaing and place 52 stitches onto left tip of cir needle, (okay, so this would make a bit of sense as I'd just climbed down the side of the work knitting the 26 stitches above). :??
Finally, knit these 52 sts, pm, pick up and knit 26 sts along other side of base for a total of 156 sts - which would mean I'm going up the other side of the base? :XX:
Thank you so SO very much for any insight or ideas!
