So if you look at the chart, you will cast on Left Bottom, then cast on Right Bottom with a different piece of yarn and work Right Bottom for 3 rows, then pick back up with those first stitches you cast on for Left Bottom and work 3 rows, then join Left and Right Bottom together to make those little bumps at the flower end of the apple (you know, where the apple tastes the sweetest...yum!).
I hope this helps you understand what the pattern is saying.
Post any other questions you might have and someone here will help you...and be sure to post a picture of your finished apple!
I am actually making three of these for my 4-year-old daughter's preschool teachers for Christmas. I know it is only April, but I work part-time, and time flies so I am starting early. I will try to remember to post a picture when I am done.
