Do I cast on the 6 stiches using the needle that has my second ear flap on?
Turn? Does that just mean I'm doing a purl row?
I think I can help you with these instructions. I am assuming you have
knitted two earflaps that have been put onto holders waiting to
be attached to the hat. So you will cast on 6 sts onto an
empty needle. Knit these sts and then knit the 23 held sts
from an earflap. This will give you 29 sts on the needle
(23 from the earflap + 6 co).
Then turn your work and using cable cast on or knitted cast on,
co 32 sts. (There will now be 61 sts on the needle) Turn you
work. K23 from the other earflap. (there are now 84 sts on the
needle). Turn your work and doing either cable co or knitted
co, cast on the remaining 6 sts. (There should be 90 sts total)
Clear as mud?
