I am a beginning knitter trying to make a bolero sweater from Debbie Bliss’ Junior Knits book (Molly). I think I’m in a little over my head!
So far I’ve cast on 72 sts for 22 rows.
Then it says:
change to circular needle
cast on 8 sts at beg of next 8 rows. 136 sts.
work 30 rows in St st.
So, I cast on 8 sts with a new ball onto a circular needle, then brought the 72 sts onto the circular needle. Is this correct? So now I have these 80 sts on the circular needle, and I’m not sure what to do. Do I take another ball and cast on another 8 sts, and then proceed to knit the first 8 sts I cast on and then keep going around? The piece is turned around so that if I knit, I don’t think the sts will be facing the right away. And if I do this, how/where do I cast on the other 8 sts in each of the next 6 rows?
I’m totally lost. Help!
Thanks so much. What a great forum!
