Hello! First time posting - hope someone can help. The directions on my pattern say: “With WS facing, place 31 stitches back on needles. Rejoin yarn and bind off one stitch. Purl to end of row.” It’s back neck shaping on a sweater.
Where I’m very confused is: I have other stitches currently held per the pattern, but the working tail is with that yarn. So, when it says “rejoin” do I rejoin with the working yarn that is way over on the held stitches? (When I did that, the sweater got twisted up and it stopped making sense all together so I undid it.) OR does “rejoin” mean add a new working yarn strand?
Does “rejoin” always mean add a new working yarn strand?
If I do that I will have two working yarn strands. But nowhere in the pattern does it later deal with that extra working yarn. I’m sorry if this is confusing. I’m also confused! And a new knitter.
Thank you if you can help! I just want to learn and get better!
