I am knitting a christmas stocking on a round needle. I am really stuck. Here’s the problem: the directions say to K 45, drop MC, do not cut, using DPN and waste yarn, k 30, drop waste yarn go back to beg of these same sts worked in waste yarn and using MC k these 30 sts again onto circular needle. Knit 5 rnds.
1.) What is waste yarn?
2.) Are the 30 sts knitted in the waste yarn attached to the stocking?
3.) There are 60 sts in the needle now what do I do with the other 15?
4.) Do I knit 5 rnds with just those 30?
