ok, thank you. See, I am getting better. Once I posted this, I read it again, and it kinda made a LITTLE sense lol…but when i put the stitch back…am I going to bind this off the needles??? or will I still have stitches? I think that is what is confusing me, because once I get this done, I have to add the straps…
Yes put the new stitch back on the left needle, then repeat… Knit the one you just put back together with the next one, and put the new stitch back on the left. Eventually, you get to the last stitch; cut your yarn, leaving a few inches and pull the stitch through. You’re done there
For the straps, you wrote:
“with smaller circ needles, and right side facing, pick up 7 loops from bound off edge approx 3’ from side… " You do just that, only I think you meant 3” not 3 feet. Pick up the stitches along the bound off stitches you just did, starting 3" from the side edge, and knit the strap.
