Hello all, this site is just fantastic, so many wise words of wisdom, so I turn to you all to ask for help once again.
I’m very new to knitting, and thought I’d give making a baby’s cardigan a go to practice some new techniques.
Im not at the stage where I have sewn the shoulder seems onto the back piece of the cardigan (no sleeve attached yet). Now I’m moving onto the collar.
I need to pick up new stitches along the sides…this bit is fine. But, along the back, I have stitches left on a stitch holder, so I need to go from; picking up new stitches, transferring stitches, then back to picking up new stitches.
Im not too sure how to go about this, for example, do I pick up new stitches, some how cut the thread I’m using, transfer the back stitches across onto the needle, then when I get back to picking up stitches on the other side, do I start the thread again, or do I just carry the thread across ?
Hopefully that all made sense. I’m not sure why my pattern told me to hold stitches on a holder, for the back bit, as opposed to just picking up new stitches all the way across : /
Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help displace my utter confusion !!!
