Knitting Mitchie,

Thank you for the tip.
I know it seems like a lot of work after knitting.
I don't know I can do this.
I am a beginner!

One more question! Please help me!!

I am also knitting a baby Shrug.
I could not understand "cast-on" after knitting some rows.

Like this...

Back, front, & Sleeves

Work in one piece.
With size 8 needles, cast on 8 sts.
P 1 row.
Beg with a k row, work in St st.
Cast on 13 sts at beg of next rows. 60 sts.
Beg with a k row, work 30 rows in St st.
Change to size 8 circular needle.

Shepe Sleeves
Cast on 8 sts at beg of next 8 rows. 124 sts.

Are "Cast-on" and "increase" same thing?
I don't understand about that.
Please help me!

No. Check out the vids for Cast Ons and Increases to see the difference. Do either a Knitted or Cable CO to add sts to the existing rows.

ETA: Casting on to existing rows is very common question. Some existing threads that might interest you:

I am making Debbie's baby shrug right now.
I have a 8 side circular needle with 124 sts and making a back of shrug.
I finished Back, front, & Sleeves and shape sleeves. and then this below.


Here is my question:

Divide for fronts
Next row k52 sts, leave these sts on a spare needle, bind off next 20 sts, k to end.(total 124 sts)
Cont on last set of 52 sts for left front.
Work even for 5 rows, ending at front edge.
Next row(right side)k3, M1, k to end.
Work even for 3 rows.
Rep the last 4 rows 4 times more and the inc row once more. 58 sts.
----------------------
I did knit 52 sts and binded off 20 sts, and knit 52 (left sleeve)st.
I could not understand after that. I worked in St st for 5 rows.(Left side 52 sts) Is that right?
And how can I go to Next row(right side) k3, M1, k to end if the working yarn is left side. I wish I could post my phote, but I don't know how.
Please help me, I would like to make this shrug for my baby!
Thank you.

I think it means knit to the end of the set of sts you're working on, not all of them.

So you mean,
Cont on last set of 52 sts for left front.
Work even for 5 rows, ending at front edge.

Next row(right side)k3, M1, k to end.
Work even for 3 rows.
Rep the last 4 rows 4 times more and the inc row once more. 58 sts.
for the left 52 sts side?
So why does it say "Next row (right side)"??

Even though you're only working on 52 sts, there's still a RS/WS to them. After you've done the 16 rows, your next row will be a RS row.
