I am making the Debbie Bliss hooded jacket from “simply baby” pg 103 and need some help.
I can knit up to the “Shape hood” section. I have 63 sts on a size 8 circular needle (working back and forth) and this is what the pattern reads:
Next row:(RS) K12, bind off next 39sts, k to end
Next row:k1,p11, cast on 66sts,p11,k1 (90sts)
If I work the first row, I will have 12 sts, a big gap and 12 sts on my needles. Then I will turn it and k1, p11, but then how do I cast on 66 sts? I don’t understand how to do that. Do I need another ball of yarn? Does this mean increase 66 sts in a row? Then, how do I continue on to p11, k1 after the cast on. I am trying to picture it and having alot of trouble.
Thanks for any advice.
