Pattern I don't understand
Cast on 71 sts.
Knit 6 rows in stockinette stitch.
Knit 18 rows on the first 22 sts in stockinette st.
Thread yarn through sts & draw up tight, secure.
Join yarn to next 27 sts & knit 30 - 36 rows in st. st.

The red part of this pattern is the part that has me stuck. I understand WHY but not HOW. Any help? Thanks~ Brooke

I think we need to hear the why, in order to give you the how. This is a new one to me!....

(I have a picture of what it sounds like they want you to do, but I feel compelled to double check, because I can't imagine WHY they'd want you to do it!) :??

Im workin on it, Brooke! I 'm making one, too, while we're at it!

I think that on the 7th (p) row, Im going to knit the first 22 sts, then either transfer the rest to a st holder or leave it on the original needle & bring out one of my other (crappy plastic) 8's, turn the work, & continue w/the 18 required rows.

Then, Im going to try to join back to the main body of work, similar to the way you would join on circs & knit 30-36 rows on the next 27 sts.

I think when you then do that 2nd join, it makes the "pouch" part....then I am visualizing that when you knit the 18 rows on those last 22 sts, those 2 ends are the ones you would seam to make the "weenie" part of the warmer.

Let's see how it goes!! We need to transfer this to the April KAL challenge for our KNOTTY submission! :eyebrow:

Ill take pics as I go along & show you what Im doing.....we're in this TOGETHER, now, sister!

Great,I just finished the stockineete st rows. All 6 of them.
I have to knit this in secret b/c it's surprise for hubby. He went out for a few hours tonight so I thought it was a perfect time to start!
Thanks Kelly! ~Brooke
