As someone new to this forum (whew, glad I found you!) I am kind of new at knitting - have done projects, but don’t stay with the craft and get rusty.
Now, however, I have some special inspiration: to knit an afghan for our daughter who is deployed. I have the pattern - seems very easy, but it requires double strand knitting which I have never attempted.
I THINK I have the right idea of what it is but can someone confirm, deny, or set me straight please?
I’ll be using two different colors, and a 32 inch size 13 circular needle (another first). When I cast on the 115 stitches, in reality, I think that means I will have 230 single stitches. Do I knit/purl each stitch as a single stitch with the same color yarn? Or do I knit one stitch with both strands of yarn?
Am I hopeless?
Thanks for any help you can give me. I will now go to the video section to see if there’s anything there.
(that’s kind of like being lost and not wanting to stop at a gas station for directions, isn’t it)? :teehee:
