I've been working on this sweater from knitting Pure and Simple. I've finished the hood up to this part. It says: "Divide the hood stitches in half, put on separate needles and Kitchener weave them together OR bind off sts, fold hood in half and sew a seam."
Okay, so I want to do the first option, but I have NO idea how to put the stitches on separate needles. Does that just mean to pull the cord from the circular needle I'm using, and put half the stitches on one needle and half on the other, or does it mean to move the stitches over to straight needles, and if so, HOW do I do that??? I think I understand the Kitchener stitch and I'd really like to not have a seam. I'm probably overthinking it, but still.... HELP!!!
p.s.... after (and assuming I've done it right) it says to fold the 3 st casing to the inside of the the hood front and pin in place then stitch down all around. I am assuming this is to make a small tube for the cord to go in, but the pattern makes no mention of the cord, or how to get it in once the casing is done... do I just do an icord and thread it through or what???
I realize I've asked two questions... thanks for putting up with me
