First of all I would like to thank everyone who has responded when I have asked questions. Each of you and Amy’s videos have helped me enormously.
Now I have another question about a poncho I’m making. This is my first project that is not a blanket or an afghan or a shawl or a scarf, so it’s quite a new area of knitting for me. The pattern is a free one from Bernat, which can be found [color=darkblue] here [/color]. At least I hope you can get to it for you must be registered or something or other to get the free patterns. If you search for it on their site, it’s called Denimstyle Turtleneck Poncho.
Even though there is a difference in many of the terms Canadians use, I’ve managed to decipher their directions except one of them in this pattern. I’m not even sure it’s a difference in their terms, but possibly a mistake in their directions.
Anyway the part that confuses me is the place where the turtleneck ribbing in the round is 10" long. The next instruction is “fasten off.” This is weird. How does one fasten off with 120 stitches on the needle? It’s not something I’ll be drawing up into a bunch. Shouldn’t this be something like bind of (cast off in Canadian) in K2, P2 ribbing? :??
