Joining in the round
I have a pattern for a blanket that is worked entirely in the round, increasing at 4 points outward to form a giant square.
The directions say: "Using kpns, CO 4 stitches. Divide onto 4 needles. Join in the round, (k1,yo,k1) into all sts. Place end of round marker." You proceed to m1 on the knit rounds until you get to 116 sts and change to a circular.
I can't figure out how to do this. I only have 4 dp needles and a circular. I tried dividing onto 3 needles (1 st., 2 sts., 1 st.) and knitting with the 4th, but that didn't seem to work.
I wondered if anyone could help me out with this?
