I decided to try my hand at mittens. I found a pattern that looked simple and easy enough for my first pair. I got to a part I am not sure about and would like clarification.
[I]K across needle 1. k2, then k next 4 sts with a piece of waste yarn.[I]
Now do I use waste yarn and not the working yarn to knit these stitches? I think that is what it is saying but I am not 100% sure and I really don’t want to proceed it my understanding is wrong.
