Uh, I think you can just pick up stitches on the ends of your rectangle(s)...

Hmmm, now I am thinking I don't need it. If the kid will let me take her picture I'll post it and see what you all think.

length?
I'm working on a toddler scarf for my daughter. I'm not using the homespun though. I went crazy and picked out Paton's Twister, but still using size 10 needles. I was wondering how long your cast on edges are? I want to make sure my rectangles are the right size.

Thanks!

toddler pancho help!
You guys, I'm sorry but I' a dork.

I'm a new knitter and I just don't get it. Okay, so I make essentially a big rectangle that's 32 stiches (CO) x 16 inches. I bind off when my rectangle is only 16 inches long. Than I fold it into an L, and fold the L into a V and join everything together?

My rectangle is not yet 16 inches, but I want to first confirm that I have to bind off before joining (this is my first joining project), but also I'm concerned becuase it doens't seem possible with only 16 inches to work with.

Where is my feeble little braing going wrong???

Thanks for any help.

Amy actually has a video on assembling it here, about mid-way down on the page. I haven't watched it, but maybe that will help. Also, I'm thinking that maybe you need two rectangles of the same size? That's what it looks like in the original baby sized pattern.

Yes, it's two rectangles that you make and join together (as Amy shows in the video).

I'm just about finished with my toddler poncho, but have an elementary question on finishing it. When I "sew" the two rectangles together, how, exactly, is that done? Do I just thread a yarn needle with the yarn and whipstitch the two edges together, or what? This is only my third project, and my first two were scarves. I am totally clueless here.

Rennagayle, could you post the finished size of your rectangles? I'm still pretty clueless as to how wide they are (how long the cast on side is) THanks!

I altered the pattern slightly when I made mine. I used a worsted weight (Caron's Simply Soft), and cast on 36 stitches. My rectangles each measure 9" x 15".

Yeah...uh...I knew that.

:-/

Thanks Rennagayle, I knew there was something dreadfully wrong! I never looked at the original baby pattern. Now it makes so much more sense!

I'm working on rectangle #2 now. Almost finished!
