I’ve got a needle with 27 knitted stitches, 8 on a holder that were knitted with the new yarn, and 27 more knitted stitches with the new yarn to the end of the needle.
(the pattern calls for stockinette stitch)
I am assuming my next row I will begin to purl with the NEW yarn. Then the pattern says:
“at each neck edge bind off 4 sts twice and work until each side edge meas. 22” from beginning"
I am assuming the “neck edge” is right before where my stitch holder is placed, correct? So then I am completely abandoning the 8 stitches on the holder.
And as far as measuring the “side edge” is that from the bottom of the entire piece?
I apologise if these are silly questions, but it is my very first attempt at doing ANYTHING besides a scarf and I want to do it right the first time!
