When knitting the Long Weekend Adventure Bag by Noni, you work in the round for 90 rows. Then on the 91st round you K11; Kf&b in the next 6 sts; K11. Repeat for the opposite short end. In the next round, K11, then put one half of each of the 6 double-stitches on a holder to the outside of the bag like this: Kl, put 1 on a holder, K11. Repeat on opposite short end. Continue untl you have completed 96 rounds total.
BO all sts except those on the holder.
Move the 6 sts from the holder to a double-pointed needle, join a new double strand, and work in St st with the RS facing out for 2 rows. Then increase to 8 stitches as follows: K1, m1, K4;m1, k1.
I believe that I have completed the above knitting correctly.
This is the part that I don’t understand:
Put the first and last two stitches on one needle and the middle four on another. Work the 8-st tab in the round on two needles for a total of 12 rows from the start of the tab to the finish. BO.
How do I start knitting when my yarn is in between stitches?
Any help would be appreciated.
