In case you haven't already read Suzeeq's post or continued knitting on your own. The free tail of your knitting should still be available after casting on the two stitches (which is probably to replace the stitches you "removed from play" when you passed your slip stitches over). And as Suzeeq stated the two newly cast on stitches won't be worked until the next row, continue repeating the pattern between the asterisks however many times the pattern calls for with the remaining stitches on the left hand needle. Dopey questions I don't see any dopey questions
. Good luck.
