I found this pattern and want to try to knit it. As I was looking over the pattern, I am confused on how to start the neck. The pattern says:
"If you were to simply cast on the total neck stitches in a circle, you would not be able to get the completed sweater over your head! This problem is solved by having the front of the neck dropped. To achieve this, the neck is knit as an incomplete circle, increasing one stitch on each end every other row until half of the front stitches have been added. The remaining front stitches are then cast on to complete the circle."
How do you connect the circle. I have knit in the round before, but it seems that you work stitches, then cast more on, but when does it become a complete circle.
Any help would be appreciated. Here is the link to the pattern:
