Thank you, Salmonmac
That is how I have done it on a flat piece. But this is on 4, size 3 needles (8 if you count the ones that should be on a stitch holder)... and in the round and there is no room to do it that way-to fold into the circle. But can I put all the stitches on 1 needle or at least the ones that should be on a stitcholder? would that work? if so, I am so blonde...
I don't have it with me right now so trying to picture putting them on a stitcholder. I don't have one. I can buy one or is there something else that may work?
Your instructions are awesome, btw. Very well put.
