I started this baby blanket the other day, and it was coming along nicely (until I frogged it b/c there was something wrong with a stitch somewhere around the 10th row that my OCD couldn’t handle). But the only thing is, I’m having trouble with the cast on and knitting of the first few rows. First of all, casting on only 5 stitches is a first for me, and it’s really throwing me off…how do you divide it on your dpn’s? Do you use only 2, or try to use 3?
Secondly, when I finally managed to get past the first few rows, I noticed that I have huge holes for the increases. I mean it’s not terrible, because it looks like a flower design. But I’d rather get it to look like the pic on the pattern if possible. And goodness knows I don’t want my little beignet’s toosh to catch a draft!
