Okay, I’ve knitted quite a few things, and usually patterns are pretty descriptive or not too inventive on the first row. The first row is usually a knit or something like that.
I am knitting some baby socks. I’ve got 33 stitches divided on 3 needles. Here is the start of the pattern:
with MC, cast on 20 (24, 33) sts. split evenly among needles. Join being careful not to twist.
1: with MC, * sl2, k1. repeat from * around. 2: with CC, k2, p1. repeat from around
Now, how do I “join” when I am really supposed to be slipping the first two stitches? Do I knit one round, is that considered a join? Or do I just slip the two, knit and join in that way?
