I’m at the point where the instructions tell me to pick up and “knit twisted” 16 stitches along the first edge of the rectangle, and this is where I am stuck. (The “knit twisted” is especially confusing.)
I have cast on on my 34 stitches and knitted for 34 rows. The instructions do not say to bind off. I have The Knitter’s Bible and another book and they only refer to picking up stitches with new yarn on a piece that has already been completed. I have watched Amy’s video, and I’m pretty sure I understand how to pick up stitches. If I understand the instructions properly, I am NOT to bind off. Can that be right? I have 34 stitches on my needle and somehow I am supposed to pick up stitches from the other 3 sides? The booga bag instructions tell me to start with 16 stitches, and I can easily see where to pick these up. I just don’t know how to go about doing it the way I have it. Any help/suggestions/etc. would be greatly appreciated!
