Hi!! I just started working on a little sweater for my baby girl due in august. The pattern is called Juliette and I am working on the smallest size. It has you starting on the neckline and then breaking the yarn after a few increases. Then it tells you to cast on using the backwards loop method. These are the instructions:
With RS facing and using backwards loop method,
cast on sts for the front panels as follows:
(RS): CO 12 (13, 14, 14) [15, 16, 17] sts to RHN,
continue with working yarn to make RS row 1
as above, CO 12 (13, 14, 14) [15, 16, 17] sts.
What I don’t understand is if I’m working on a circular needle, which one is the Right hand needle, and anyway, if I cast on like that, how am I supposed to continue on with the rest of the row if I’m gonna end up on the opposite side where there are no stitches? I am not working in the round so how do I continue with the row after I cast on the new stitches? Please help!
