Starting an Afghan
I am starting an afghan and the pattern says that you work one holding two strands of yarn together. What does this mean?

Is that the exact wording? Do you have a link to the pattern?

Possibly you are working the stitches using two strands of yarn and it's just worded strangely.

If this idea is new to you and confusing you I'll try to explain a bit more. Use two pieces of yarn, usually one from each of 2 different skeins of yarn. Hold them together as if they were one strand of yarn and knit that way. It's to make it thicker and the stitches bigger, so faster to do as well.
