i’m knitting the frontband for my almost finished sweater. i now need to slip the seven stiches that have been hanging out on a st holder on to a needle and join yarn. this i can do. the next instruction says to m1k, then (p1,k1) three times, k1-8 sts. i know how to m1k, but how do i do it before the first stitch? usually i pick up the piece of yarn that connects two stitches and make another stitch from there.
