I’m making a nice pattern I purchased online for a beret (Verity). I’ve completed the hat portion. Live stitches are still on the round needles waiting for the band portion.
Next, the pattern states to cut the yarn and put the hat part aside. Then, use 2 dpns to create the beginning of the band (separate from the hat for now). The band will have a little flap that goes over itself with a button (for show only). I’ve finished the start of the band (the flap part), 12 stitches, 15 rows, on dpns. But now I’m confused about how to join to the live stitches of hat portion to create the actual band. I understand how to do the stitches in the pattern, just not how to join per pattern.
The directions state: The rest of the band will now be worked onto the hat. With the wrong side of hat facing you, join the band to the first stitch on the left needle tip.
Q: How do I accomplish this join?
The pattern then states:
NEXT ROW (WS): k1, sl1… repeat to 2 sts from end, k1, ssk working 1 stitch from band together with 1 stitch of hat. Turn.
Q: What am I turning?
NEXT ROW (RS): P1, sl1… repeat to 2 sts from end, p2.
Rep these 2 rows until all of the hat sts have been worked. Bind off.
Can anyone explain, in simple beginners terms how to join and give me an idea of how to work this portion? I’m unsure if I’m working with 1 dpn and my round needles, or if I’m supposed to be working these stitches with 2 dpns, as I’ve been using to create the start of the band.
Thanks again for your help,
