Hi - I'm fairly new to knitting. I've only been knitting for about a month and other than dishcloths and a capelet that I'm making for my niece haven't knitted anything else.
I am making the Balaclava Hood from Bernat. You can see a picture of it HERE. It is done on circular needles up until I do the shaping of the top.
My question is about slipping stitches. I've never done this before. I've done 5 inches of K1, P1 ribbing and then six rows of stocking st like the pattern calls for. Now they would like me to knit 81 stitches and then slip the last 27 stitches onto a stich holder. Will I just continue to knit in the round and slip those stitches each row or will I need to work those 81 stitches as 1 row knit and 1 row pearl? I guess I'm confused.
Thanks in advance for any help.
