I am creating a hat and it requires adding the ear flaps after creating the hat, I have never done it this way before.
First earflap: count 4 stitches over to the right of one marker and pick up 14
stitches. For garter stitch, pick up from the outside of the hat (put your needles in from
the outside and pull the yarn through from the inside), and pick up slightly above the
cast on edge (about a stitch higher than you normally would pick up from). [If picking up
from a seed stitch border, pick up from the INSIDE of the hat.]
I am confused about the bolded text. Do I pick up on the cast on edge or up higher? I have done it higher but now I can’t figure out how to continue knitting…
