need advice from experiences knitters
I have decided to learn to knit. I have started getting video's, kits and downloading free patterns.
As I am reading the pattern, I have run across something that I have not found an explanation for in the "learn to knit" instructions that are on the internet.
I would appreciate it if someone would explain this for me:
One of the patterns says cast on 134 stitches. I understand that part but right after that it has (162). I don't know what(162) means.
I'm sure that as time goes on I will have more questions and I will be back.
Feel free to answer in email, just make sure the word knitting is in the subject line.
Thanks in advance.
