Circular knitting: where does the new round begin?
This may be a rather silly question, but I've run into a discrepency. I was taught that, the first stitch (the stitch that joins the two ends) was the first stitch of the round. Recently I was doing a pattern that instructed "join ends and place marker." Is the seccond stitch the actual beginning of a round when dealing with circular knitting?

I don't think it makes all that much difference. I pick the point between the last cast on stitch and the first as the beginning of the round.

I always understand `join and place marker' to mean put the marker between the last and first stitch.
