I really need your help please … I’m trying to knit a really pretty bag but it’s on dpn’s and I don’t know what to do. I have never worked with dpn’s before and the only videos I can find are showing me another technique not the one the pattern says.
My pattern says:
Cast on 27 St and k in moss St on 2 needles for 9 rows to make the bag base.
This I have done
Using another dpn pick up 10 St down the side of the base rectangle,
Use another dpn to pick up 26 St along the cast on edge
Another needle for the 10 St up the other side.
A) I have only worked 9 rows
I don’t have a clue how to pick up stitches
All the instructional videos I have seen for working with dpn’s tell me to cast on the total number of stitches on 2 needles and them spread the, across the dpn’s in the right configuration. (Even the ones on this site)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can you help
Ps the pattern is ‘A Gift for Girls’ a lace bag by Dorothy Wood in a Knit-Today.com magazine from March 2011 that I bought of eBay xxx
