This is probably (hopefully) a silly question with an obvious answer. I am knitting a doll skirt from the stickatillbarbie site. Here is the pattern:
Cast on 28 sts and work rib st, K 1, P 1, for 3 rows. (Waist)
Continue with stockinette st and increase to 39 sts on first row:
Continue until whole piece measures 3 cm.
Cast on 14 new sts at the beginning of next row and work:
Row 1: 14 sts rib st (K1, P 1), K 2 tog, turn
Varv 2: Slip 1 st, rib st throughout row
Varv 3: 7 sts rib st ( K 1, P 1) turn
Varv 4: Slip 1 st, rib st throughout row
Repeat these 4 rows until all the sts are knitted.
Cast off and sew up back seam.
My confusion is with the cast on 14 stitches. In following the pattern I ended up going back and forth on just those stitches. At what point do I continue on my pre-existing work?
Hope someone can help me, thanks!
