1st try at circ needles...how to join to get started?!
Kathy in MO here. My next foray has been circular knitting needles. I'm doing a baby hat. All the patterns say 'join for working in the round, being careful not to twist, place marker...' Can't find any instructions in books. I tried just going on to the first stitch the first time I came around to the marker, and knitting around. I've done about 3 rows and now it's starting to look like one piece but in the first rows there is a definite space where the marker was. This is a knit cap in cotton so the edge is going to roll up. Shall I just weave in the end and kind of 'sew' the little gap together, assuming it might not show because of the roll?
What do I do to avoid this gap the next time?
