So I’m new to Knitting Help, and knitting in general. I decided to jump right into an intermediate pattern, and just see how it goes. And now I am a little lost.
I’m working on a dog sweater and I’ve gotten to the leg opening part. I’ve casted off the stitches for the leg opening and knit to the end of the row. Now it says to work 2.5 inchesin stocking st from the cast offs ending with the RS facing for the next row. I’m assuming that I just pick up the stitches from the cast off and knit a flat piece off the opening for 2.5 inches. I’m wondering how to start picking up the stitches, I watched the video on this site, however in the video, the orange thread was already attached to the work. What do I do to attach it?
Next It says to knit the joining row, is that just a continuation from the row with the leg opening cast offs, or is this an entire different row taht will later be attached?
The pattern is #4 in the Patons another dog’s life book. I don’t know if that helps
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
