You are going to be knitting a 'tube'. You knit in your 1st cast on stitch after your last cast on stitch to join the 2 ends, then you will be knitting in the round. Be sure that your stitches are not twisted on the needles when you join. Are you using dbl points, 2 circulars or the majic loop?
Hope this helps,
Kathy

Hi,
This means you won't be knitting back to front and vice versa or flat anymore. Amy explains how to join so you can knit in the round in the Advanced Techniques section of the web site here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...ed_techniques/

thanks so much!

i'm using dpns. i'm curious to know if this join counts as part of the first row or not. if the instructions say to join into the round, does that mean i'm starting the first row of k1p1 or not?

thanks again!

Yes, the joining row is your first row so start the k1p1 pattern.

The joining itself is not a row... the first row you knit all the way around is the first row (or round). Knit the first couple of stitches very tightly: lots of people have trouble with a bit of a gap there later on (if you do see it don't worry you can sew it closed with the tail).

I found the photos on this website to really help me when I was learning to join in the round.
http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/circular.html

I used to cast on an extra stitch, then put it on the left needle and knit them together to join the circle. Now, I just cross the first and last stitches of my cast-on row to join them. It makes a perfect connection.
