I am looking for a little help with a pattern I am currently making up. It’s a ballerina outfit for a teddy bear which came with Knitting magazine issue 64 in a supplement.
The instructions say the following…
ML - Place sequin on a loop. Knit into the next stitch and, before slipping the stitch off the left needle, slide a sequin up to the needle and bring the yarn to the front of the work between the needle points. Wrap the yarn around your left thumb and take it back between the needle points. Now, knit into the stitch again and then slip the stitch off the needle. You will now have 2 stitches on the right-hand needle. Cast one off by lifting one stitch over the other.
My problem is that the wool I’m using is Rowan Calmer for the main pink skirt which is too thick to put a sequin on and the sequins seem to be through the Rowan Kidsilk Haze but it doesn’t say to change wools. Should I thread the sequins all on the Haze first then knit them into the Calmer? It’s quite confusing for me and I can’t find anything online. When I google ML, it comes up with magic loop and I have no idea what that is and also make one, which I know is wrong.
I’ve not been knitting long, so if this is a really simple question, apologies!
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
