Im trying to figure out what this means… I’m very new to knitting and this is my first project I want to start.
The pattern starts by saying,
“Holding 1 strand each of A and B together, cast on 84 stitches.”
Does this mean to use two peices of string and count it as one cast on? Do I knit the two strings together throughout?
Also there is a pattern for the same thing in a solid color instead of a mixed color, but the mixed colored one calles for 5 balls of two different yarns and the solid one calls for only 7. Why would this be different??
Both patterns are from lion brand website and called Plush Throws. I cant’ add them because of my post count…
One more thing, would it be better (as in easier) to use size 11 needles or one of the circular needles for a bigger project like this one??
