I am knitting an "easy" baby sweater. Supposed to "cast on firmly 2 sts, place a market, cast on 10 sts, plae a market... etc. But when I cast on what feels like one stitch, it looks like two. There are two loops. Is this one stitch or two?
This has never mattered in knitting scarves and blankets b/c I usually knit in garter stitch so it doesn't matter how many stitches I cast on if it's off by one. But now, since I have to place a marker after two stitches, it does matter!
In case anyone else has done this sweater, it's Knitting Pure and Simple pattern #214, "baby pullover" - http://knittingpureandsimple.com/kids.html
