uffda, I got ahead of myself...(I think)
Ok, you've just finished knitting a row, and all your knitting is on the right needle.
You want to turn your work like you are starting a new row, all the stitches are now on the left needle.
Instead of knitting what you've already knit, cast on the left needle the number of stitches required using the knit on method of casting on.
I use this method for more than 3 stitches, as the backwards loop method does 't give me much stability.
Then continue in your pattern stitches transfering the stitches as you normally would from the left needle to the right needle.
is that a clearer form of mud??
