I am a beginning knitter. My project is a simple rib knit with a keyhole. At the keyhole, the instructions are “work in rib pattern over first 15 stitches, join a second ball of yarn,work in rib pattern over last 50 stitches.
Working both sides at once, work even for 13 more rows.
work in rib pattern over first 15 stitches, with same ball of of yarn, work in rib pattern to end. Cut second ball of yarn.”
Is the join just like I have done before, essentially start knitting with a new strand? When I “work the rib pattern over last 50sts” is that with the new ball of yarn only? Does working both sides at once mean alternating balls of yarn each row?
Thanks for any help. By the time I get to the keyhole in this project it will be Dec. 25 and no help from the LYS available.
