I am knitting a baby sweater with ragland sleeves. The instructions say"At the end of the last increase row, cast onto the right tip of the needle 7 sts and joing the work into a round, being careful not to twist the work.
How do I cast on the 7 stitches on the right needle without making a large gap of yarn which would connect the two needles. I'm confused how to cast on 7 stitches on the right need and all the other stitches are on the left needle. I am knitting with circular needles.
You can use the backward loop CO, or move the R needle to your left hand and use a knit or cable CO. Then put the needle back in the right hand and knit the next stitch on the left needle to join them.
