I'm new here, but I have a question I hope some of you wise knitters will be able to help me with. I am working on a Debbie Bliss pattern for a baby shrug. Earlier in my knitting, I was instructed to split the yarn for the front, leaving the other side stitches on a spare needle. Easy enough. I then continued on with the stitches I had left until I reached their end. I have now been instructed to leave these stitches on a holder and begin work on the other side. The exact instructions read, "Leave remaining stitches on a holder. With wrong side facing, join yarn to remaining stitches on spare needle..."
My question is, how do I leave stitches on a holder without binding off, and then join the yarn if the two fronts aren't supposed to be joined?
Thanks for all your help!
