I’m currently knitting a pair of baby booties, and it’s my first time following a knitting pattern!
I was going great at first, but now I’m stuck. I’m sure it’s a very simple thing though I have tried to Google and YouTube and cannot find an answer. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated!
The scenario is below:
The pattern says: next row: knit (I’ve done this all ok)
Next row: k8 sts and place on stitch holder, bind (cast off) 19 sts, then k rem 7 sts
So, I’ve knitted the 8 sts and now I’ve got 8 sts on my right (working) needle. Now I think I’m supposed to transfer these 8 sts onto a stitch holder, however I don’t understand how this works when the last stitch is the working stitch with the yarn attached?
The next line of instructions is: knit 3 rows on these 8 sts. Bind (cast off).
Ie. How do I keep knitting when the yarn is attached to the stitch that is on the holder? All the videos I’ve watched show people transferring stitches from the left needle not the right.
I don’t know if I’ve gone wrong somewhere or not! I hope this makes sense. I’ve attached a photo showing the 8 stitches on the right needle and the working yarn.
Thank you so much!!!
