So I’ve been working on this flapped mitten and i have finished the bottom part of the mitten and I’m ready to get started on the flap.
So I have stitch holders with 24 stitches I’m calling the “hinge” of the flap. The instructions call for me to:
Transfer sts from holders onto smaller dpn as follows:
With Mitten palm side up, place the 2 far right sts and the 2 far left sts on Needle 1 [there will be a large gap between sts across the palm]; place 10 sts on each Needles 2 and 3.
Using CC, k2 from Needle 1, [B]CO 16 sts across gap[/B], k2; knit across Needles 2 and 3 - 40 sts total.
I’m curious - I have never cast on after knitting 2 before (only making one slip knot) - do I still use the tail? If I do - won’t it look kind of odd having the tail come from the first stitch over that second knit?
Thanks in advance!
