a mother who needs help!
I am trying to make thigh high socks for my daughter who turns 21 this month! Please, if anyone can answer this question I would GREATLY appreciate it. The pattern reads: Cast on 8 sts. Next row: (RS). Knit. Turn work upside down. With WS facing and another needle, pick up and knit 8 sts along cast on edge. 16 sts. Divide sts into 4 sts on 1st and 3rd needles, 8 sts on 2nd needle. Join in rnd, placing a marker on first st.
My question is this: When picking up and knitting the 8 sts am I putting those stsl back onto the original needle? (i.e. will the 16 sts be on one needle or on 2 different needles????)
