I'm new to knitting. i'm making a dog sweater. I'm at the leg openings. The instructions say k5 place rm st. on holder then knit those 5 stiches for 6in. which i did. It says do not cut yarn and place 5 stitches on holder which I did. thenput 40 stitches on holder on left hand needle. I
did this. Then it says join yarn at leg opening, Dont I have to cut the yarn form the 5 stiches previously to join even though it says not to cut yarn. I'm so confused. you know knitting is pretty easy ........its following the patterns thats a hoot!!
