I am an extremely new knitter. I am making a sweater for my dd (the “Child’s Play” pullover in the Vogue Weekend Knits book).
Anyway, I have finished the back, and am about to start on the front, but am intimidated by what happens at the neckhole shaping. It says, “Join 2nd ball of yarn. Working both sides at the same time, [etc. decreases, etc. to form neck hole]”.
I absolutely do not understand this. I have spent time at the library and bookstore, poring over every knitting book, and it just doesn’t make sense. I’m using 2 single-pointed needles; no circular or DPN are called for. I do not understand how you attach a 2nd ball of yarn (and what do you attach it TO?), or anything. I was hoping to find a video clip on this site but there isn’t one.
Please help walk a clueless newbie through this procedure!
