Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I am working on this pattern for a hat and I have some questions:
I am using the 11US Circular Needles to knit this.
I am stuck on this paragraph:
“Place sts on holder until other strap is worked.
Knit across 1 ear flap, turn and cast on 12(14, 16) sts for back neck, knit across other ear flap sts, turn and cast on 18(20, 22) sts for front. Place marker before joining taking care not to twist. 48(52, 60) sts.”
For the first sentence, I am assuming you place the first chin strap on a holder and then make another one. But, do you cut the yarn before you make the next one or just start knitting without cutting the yarn?
Then the part that says knit across 1 ear flap, would I just knit one more row of the flap that will already be on the needles?
And then after I knit across, what does turn and cast on mean? I’m not understanding the turn part. Would you just start casting on from where you finished knitting the last row or would I need to cast on somewhere else?
Then, with the stitches on the holder, do you just slide that back on your needles and then knit across them?
Sorry for so many questions. Thank you for any help you can provide.
