I think that’s what the pattern is saying anyway. To work flat and round at the same time. I’ve looked all over here and Google, and none of the questions seem to quite cover what my pattern says.
[I]Cast on (#). When work measures 3/4" change needles and continue in st-st for 12 rows, then increase (as described).
AT THE SAME TIME
When work measures (#) total, continue in striped st-st using dpns or circular needles.
After the final increase, continue on (#) stitches obtained.
The pattern is for striped sleeves, but I’m making them all one color, so I’ll just ignore the bit about when to change yarn colors. But I just can’t imagine how to do the first bit flat and the lower bit in the round at the same time. It’s really giving me fits (though I haven’t tried it yet; I want to understand the method first). And FWIW, I’ll be using circular needles rather than DPNs. I’m not practiced enough with DPNs to use them for a “real” project yet.
I have a link to the pattern, but it won’t let me post it since this is my first thread. If it’s vital for helpers to see the actual pattern, please let me know and I’ll try to add it at a later time.
Thanks in advance for any help.
