Hello, I am new to knitting and started with the daisy chain pattern from ravelry. It is quite lovely and was easy, until NOW! I am using circular needles and am to the part where you edge it by picking up stitches. I understand the picking up stitches, but basically, I have the bottom of the sweater on the circular needles (I knitted from the top down and am at the bottom of the sweater) and then I am supposed to edge up the side and around the neck and down the other side. I tried pushing the bottom of the sweater down a bit and then using that free needle to pick up stitches, but ended up with half of the circular needles filled with the bottom of my sweater and half with the picked up stitches…that didn’t seem right. Here is what it says
Continue to work back and forth on the body in stockinette stitch (knit all right side rows, purl all wrong side rows) until the body measures 10 ½ (13 ½, 15)” from top of neck cast-on; end having just finished a RS row.[COLOR=“Orange”]I am here[/COLOR]
Place a marker to mark the beginning of the edging round. Pick up and knit stitches up right front of the cardigan (pick up 2 sts for every 3 rows), place a 2nd marker at the top of the right front, continue to pick up and knit 1 sts in every stitch around the neckline
(across right shoulder,across back, across left shoulder. Pick up and knit sts down the left front, picking up 2 sts for every 3 rows. Knit across all bottom edge sts ending at the beginning of round marker.
Next round: SM, purl around all edging sts ending back at beginning of the round marker. SM
Next round: knit to 3 sts before next marker, bind off 2 sts, SM, knit to end of round.
Next round: purl to previously bound off sts, remove marker, purl to end of round.
Next round: knit all sts.
Last round: Use #8 needle to bind off all sts
How do I do this???
