Ok. I’m somewhat new on the circulars and double pointed needles but I thought I had a pretty good understanding until I came upon this pattern for a felted bowl I want to make. Here’s the link to the instructions http://knitwithkt.blogspot.com/2007/08/40-years-felted-bowl.html
Anyway, it says to Cast on 5. Join for knitting in the round and place marker. (I’m using circulars) Do I have to use the magic loop method to start? or two circular needles? If so I thought you had to have an even number of stitches to divide by. I’m thrown on the joining part.
I know there’s a simple answer but I can’t figure it out. Thank you for any help!!!
Cast on 5 stitches. Join for knitting in the round, and place first marker to denote beginning of row.
Row 1: Knit in front and back of each stitch [Kf&b] (10 sts).
Row 2 and all even rows: Knit all stitches.
Row 3: (Kf&b; place marker) 10 times (20 sts)
Row 5: (Kf&b; K1) 10 times (30 sts)
Row 7: (Kf&b; K2) 10 times (40 sts)
The general idea is that you will knit in the front and back of the first stitch after the marker, then knit to the next marker, and repeat. Continue working this pattern until there are 200 stitches (20 stitches between each marker). [/INDENT]
