Yggdrasil Pattern
Anyone knitted the Yggdrasil blanket? It's gorgeous and probably too advanced for an intermediate knitter but I'm usually pretty good at self-teaching. Unfortunately I'm stumped this time...

The blanket builds from the center out, and I don't really understand what it means in the pattern for the cast on. It says: use the invisible/provisional method and dpn to CO 12 sts into the center of the loop. Arrange sts evenly on 4 dpn, 3 each. Place marker and join in the rnd.

So am I using 4 dpn and knitting in the rnd or using a cable needle to start then bringing it along each row if I knit onto 4 dpn? I'm so confused, and spent the evening trying to figure it out. I've ripped out stitches I don't know how many times trying to make it work but I just don't really understand. I'm at the point where I might just try to build each of the 4 sections separately and sew them together but I'd really rather follow the pattern.

Any thoughts?
