Apparently My previous post was confusing and I am flustered
I am knitting a halter top that knits from the bottom up. I Have completed the Body and the Bodice. Now I am working on the strap. My pattern instructed me to bind off 28 stitches (top of the bodice). Then, Next round: K8, work in rib pattern (k1,p1) for next 116 sts, k8, cast on 60 sts, [B][U][COLOR=“DarkRed”]sl end of rnd marker[/COLOR][/U][/B].
Help!! The only marker the pattern instructed me to use was at cast on (to mark the end of the first round).
My work looks like a tube top with an unattached antenne since my pattern didn’t tell me to join after the cast on of the new 60 sts.
Do I join? If so what do I slip??
I am fairly new to knitting and I am working on my first piece of clothing other than accessories (hats, scarves etc.) and I have run into a snag and I am willing to bet that there is a seasoned/experience knitter out there that can help me.
My current project is a Halter that is found in VOGUEknitting Spring/Summer 2007 on page 82 (the pattern directions are on page 117 if anyone who reads this happens to have this issue). I am on the “Halter Strap Band”. The directions are as follows:
[B]Next rnd K8, work in rib as established, k8, cast on 50 (55, 60, 65) sts, sl end of rnd marker.[/B]
I am confused about the slip end of round marker part. My stitches, since a previous bind off (of 28 stiches) in the bodice and now a cast on (of 60 stitches) in the strap, are not “joined”. So do I join, then slip?? I am just confused and baffled and I don’t have someone I can personally and literally run to for help. Which would be easier because I am sure I am not explaining my self or drawing a clear mental picture for those who might be reading this.
I am so close to finishing this that I am excited and have knitted every moment possible only to run into this speed bump.
Any help would be greatly appreciated or if I am not painting that metal picture clearly enough, please let me know.
-Thank you greatly,
