I'm making a chullo hat
for my girls and I'm just starting the first one. I've never done the cable cast on for more than a couple of stitches, and now I'm wondering if I'm doing it right! The way I understand the directions, the stitches I'm casting on all stay on my left hand needle. Then the pattern directions tell me to knit on the earflap with right side facing me, then continue casting on. First of all, that would mean that I need to transfer the needle with the cast on stitches to my right hand and knit the earflap on, and then transfer that needle back to my left hand, right? Secondly, when I look at the cast on edge and compare it to my earflap, it looks like the cast on edge is purled, and the earflap is knit. Does this make sense? I can take a few pics if I haven't made enough sense here. To be honest, it's mostly an appearance thing, and I'll be covering it with the crocheted edging once I'm done, but I'd like to know if I'm doing it right or not anyway. KWIM?
