Hi everyone! I am new here, and this is my first “real” project – I have made about a dozen scarves. I’m working on a baby kimono in this “Baby Knits Kit.” I am working on the right Front piece, and the directions tell me, after a RS row, to “cast on 8 additional stitches in CC,” then work in seed stitch for 2 inches.
First of all, I am so confused, because the photo of the sweater looks like the belt tie (where this extension will be) should be on the left side. Won’t starting it after a RS row put the tab on the right side?
Secondly – how do I cast on additional stitches in a contrasting yarn? Help me, please!! Thanks!!
