Hi, I’m knitting my first pair of socks on a set of 4 DPNs, and my pattern tells me to cast on 64 stitches (I’m doing the men’s size), and then divide the stitches like so:
Needle #1: 16 stitches
Needle #2: 16 stitches
Needle #3: 32 stitches
Now, from what I understand, once the stitches are divided, the far left needle has the first cast on stitch (at the top), and then far right needle has the last stitch that was cast on (at the top), plus the working yarn. What I am confused at is the positioning of the needles. Is Needle #1 (with 16 stitches) the needle that is the far left needle with the first cast on stitch? Or is Needle #3 (with 32 stitches) the far left needle with the first cast on stitch? Or does it even matter?
Here is the link to the pattern:
Thanks in advance!
