Hi all - new to this forum but it looks exactly the place I need. Hope the below is clear!
Am in the process of making a tea cosy and am a bit stumped by the pattern instructions - see excerpt below. Progress so far is side 1 is complete and is on a stich holder having broken off the yarn as instructed (i.e. is still live). Side 2 is now complete to this point and on the needles - so also live. BUT i’m not sure what is meant in the ‘next row’ after ‘join for top’ - am I working the two sides independently or is it asking me to join the two panels together now? sorry if i’m being dim - the mention of both sides 1 and side 2 in the row instructions has baffled me!
Complete second side to the same point as side 1, but do not break off yarn.
Join for top
Next row: P2, purl across sts of side 2 wrapping yarn twice for each st, purl across sts of side 1 wrapping yarn twice for each st, p2.
