So I am starting to knit the Luna Moth shawl, and it is using a provisional crochet cast on. I watched the provisional cast on method here and was wondering two things; Do I leave the knitting yarn end loose when doing the crochet method, only knitting it in after crocheting the first 6 chain or am I supposed to attach it somehow with the axillary yarn like the video here does?
The instructions are:
Cast on: Shawl begins at the center back using provisional cast on. With contrast color scrap yarn and crochet hook, chain 6. With shawl yarn pick up and knit 3 sts in the bumps on the back side of the center 3 chains - 3 sts. Knit 18 rows. Next row, K3, pick up and knit 1 st in each of the 9 garter ridges along selvedge edge of piece, unzip scrap yarn chain to expose 3 sts at base of the piece, place these 3 sts onto left needle, K3. (15 sts total)
Thanks for the help!
