I am trying to knit some longies. I am a proficient crocheter but knitting is all new. I am having a hard time understanding what needs to be done here. Could anyone clarify this for me?
Pattern Courtesy of http://www.dunmani.co.uk/mrsflowerpot/FlowerpotTotsDKShortiesAndLongies.pdf
Using 3.25 mm needles cast on 50 (58, 66, 74) sts. Knit 6 rows garter stitch and continue in stocking stitch (starting with a knit row) until work measures 5 (7, 9, 10) inches, ending with a purl row. Make a second leg in the same way.
Shorties and Longies Gusset Shaping
Cast on 7 (8, 9, 10) sts. Knit 1st leg, cast on 12 (14, 16, 18) sts, knit 2nd leg, cast on 7 (8, 9, 10) sts. 126 (146, 166, 186) stitches.
My questions are as follows:
Do I cast off when I am done with the first leg and then start a new leg altogether?
How do I add these legs back when making the gusset? I am super confused about how this will look. I have the pattern but there are no picture tutorials of how this should be done.
Thank you in advance,
