Setting the scene:
Ok, I want to knit Branching Out ( http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTbranchingout.html
) but with both finished designs pointing leaf tip down. (rather than like the picture with one side stem down and other side leaf tip down)
I have an idea, but not a lot of experience so please let me know if with the following plan I'll run into issues I might regret/frog.
[First of all I'm thinking of using my Sleeping Dragon Mossy Frog fingering weight and size 3.75 mm needles.]
The ideas and concerns/questions:
1. start knitting 2 scarves separately on same needles just as pattern starts.
Question: can I use both the north and south ends of the yarn or do I need to cut skein/ball in half and cast each on with two south ends?
2. put the beginning stitches (which will become the center/neck) on a holder to be ready to slide needles in for Kitchener stitching to graft later ?
3. cast off my lengths with x rows of knitting per pattern. Now, please assure me that I can return to the other ends slide needles into stitches on holders and then Kitchener the beginnings of the scarf to become the center/neck. I have trouble with spatial imagining stuff. (and possibly describing what I'm thinking of too.
