I’m just beginning to tread into fair isle knitting and have found two patterns I would like to try: the Empire State cowl and the Pine Bough Cowl
Both patterns ask to do provisional cast on and join with the round. However, I am very confused about joining the round … Why would I join in the round if I’m using a provisional cast on? I understand fair isle is usually done in a round.
As you can tell, I’m thoroughly confused and can’t even really explain my situation. This makes reading the chart confusing as well (I am also a newbie when it comes to charts - I’ve done only 2 projects with charts and that was only cable work).
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions!
