So I know knitting on circular needles and knitting in the round are two different things so my question is. When knitting in the round do you knit the first two stitches together to join them? Is that how it’s done? I’ve never knit on circular needles before and I found this pattern for a simple halter that I thought would be easy enough for me to do. It say’s to CO 120 stitches. Would I cast on 121 to join the first two, but still end up with 120? I hope that made sense :oops:
CO 120 (134, 148, 162, 176, 190, 204). Join to first stitch, without twisting stitches. Moss stitch for 1 inch. Continue in Stockinette stitch until piece measures 11“ (11½“, 12“, 12½“, 13“, 13½“, 14“). Place marker and p1, k1 across 60 stitches. Place marker. You should have 60 (74, 88, 102, 116, 130, 144) stitches remaining to form the front. Maintain ribbing on the back and Stockinette on the front for two more rounds. Bind off 60 back stitches.
