Cast on at beginning of row??
I am in the middle of a pattern and the directions say to "cast on 6 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows" and I have no idea how to do that. I mean, I know how to cast on, but I don't know how to cast on when my yarn in already attached to my work in progress. Am I supposed to bind off at the end of each row, so that I can cast on the 6 stitches and then knit along my pattern? That doesn't seem right?? If my work is on my left needle (because I am at the beginning of a row), do I have to make another slip knot and cast on the 6 stitches (and then continue along with the row as usual)? How would I know where to make the slip knot?
Is my question even making any sense??? Anyone??
