I am really confused by a pattern I want to try and make for a friend’s baby. It is for a bib that is shaped like a flower - 5 petals. The directions have you knit 1 small petal and 4 large ones and after each piece is completed up to a certain point - place the stitches on a stitch holder. Then when all 5 are completed place them on 1 straight needle with the small petal in the middle.
My question is this - when I place them on the holder do I tie off the yarn before casting on for the next one? How? Also what is the right way to place them back on the needle and rejoin the yarn?
