I have a found a pattern that instructs me to coil—and it’s suppose to create a coiled shell for this little Nautical creature. DPNs working in the round, increasing every few rows.
"Roll the shell back and upwards, toward your left needle; insert the tip of the left-hand needle into a stitch on the shell (see photo of shell in progress). Knit this stitch together with the next stitch on the needle."
This is where I got it: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html
Can someone help me? I know how to knit on dpns but I cannot figure out what she means here.
