Hi, everyone! I’m following a pattern for a knitted knight’s helmet beanie, and I’m having a really hard time understanding how to start the “blade” on the back of the helmet. Specifically, I don’t understand how to pick up stitches from two different rows onto one needle. The part I can’t comprehend is below; can anyone help me out? Thanks!:
“With MC, using the set of small needles, start at the stitch marker in round 1 of the decrease rounds and working towards the bottom edge of the hat; **pick up the ladder of the stitch(running stitch), *skip the next ladder, pick up the next ladder, repeat from * until you have a total of 19sts, pick up 2 ladders above the stitch marker. Move over one stitch and repeat from **, you will now have 2 rows next to each other.
Starting with the bottom of the hat on the right, using size 7 needles, pick up and knit through the back loop of the 42sts from both rows completing round 1.”
