Help on some instructions!
Hi everyone, I'm knitting a sock monkey and i don;t understand what some of the instructions are telling me to do.
These are the instructions for making the legs.
5th rnd: *K2. Inc 1 st in next st. Rep from * around. 24 sts.
Knit 8 rnds even. Break A. With MC, knit in rnds for 5 ins
[12.5 cm].** Leave sts on a length of yarn.
What does the "Leave sts on a length of yarn" mean?
Am i suppose to cast off?
Thanks a lot.
No, don't cast off. You are knitting your stitches onto a piece of waste yarn -- basically, another piece of yarn to hold your stitches until you need to use them again at a later point in your pattern.
It's a lot like putting your yarn on a stitch holder only you use a piece of scrap yarn (preferably a contrasting color so you can see your stitches better.)
Don't 'knit' your sts onto the other yarn - use a crochet hook or darning needle to thread the scrap yarn through the sts.
