I’m trying to knit from a bunnymuff pattern - Victoria and Josephine however the initial instructions are contradictory, at least to me.
Since this is a purchased pattern, I’ll paraphrase.
It first reads to CO 8 sts to begin knitting in the round. The crochet magic loop CO is suggested but not required.
Then, place st markers, slip 2 sts x4 (there are 4 panels)
Next, the rounds begin and the 1st round indicates to knit just 1 st. But! i’ve already CO 8 sts. Huh?? Then I will start to increase with ea. round.
How in the dickens do I only knit 1 with 8 sts already cast on??
I’m using circular needles with a long cable 40" - the shawl is a large square that starts in the center and then grows out.
any and all advice would be appreciated!
