I need help to join a flat pattern into the CIRCLE!
I have a pattern for a hat, that tells me to knit the first part of the ribbed hat on a circular needle, back and forth. Which I do understand, But I cannot figure out how to join and begin working in the round circle???
basically it goes like this
K1P1 for 9 rows
then it says "Place marker and join to begin working in the round"

thanks for any help!

When you get to the end of a row, push the sts at the beginning of the row up on the L needle, then just knit the stitch at the tip.

Yes do the same thing - work flat for 9 rows, then join as if you had just cast on.

I can understand the confusion... why join AFTER 9 rows?

But I'm assuming that they want you to do something with the first 9 rows that you couldn't do if it was round.

Dunno, some people prefer to knit flat, then join, it's likely Dell can just CO and do the first 9 rows in the round too.

What's your pattern? Can you link to it or a picture or name or something? I'm wanting to know if it's left open at the ends where you work flat or is it later sewn together.

Oh that's an idea... I think I've seen a robin hood type hat, where the ribbing isn't sewn or joined, but flipped up to make an open cuff.
