I am working on a scarf that has ruffles on the ends. The beginning of the pattern reads like this:
With larger needles and 2 strands of yarn, cast on 50 sts.
Rows 1-9 knit
Row 10: Purl
Row 11: Change to smaller needles and only one strand of yarn, k2tog across row (25 sts)
Here is my questions:
When I cast on, do I just hold one strand of yarn from two different balls of yarn and cast on as I normally do? If I do that, am I casting on 25 times to get a total of 50 sts from both balls or yarn or do I cast on 50 times, leaving a total of 100 sts on the needle.
On row 11 when I switch to only one strand of yarn, what do I do with the other strand? Will I eventually just cut it and weave it into the scarf?
Thanks. This is my first time working with 2 strands of yarn.
