This will be my third attempt at this skirt.
There are 774 cast on stitches and for the life of me, I cannot seem to get this joined in the round without twisting. The first time I knitted flat for the first 9 rows, but didn't think to knit opposite on the odd rows (knit where the pattern said purl, and vice versa) so it was all wrong. The second time I tried, I cast on all the stitches on a 60" circular, slipped almost half of those to a 47" circular and stretched both cables the entire length of my dining room table, went carefully down the entire length to make sure there were no twists, walked one end of the needle down to the other end and joined in the round. Well....I've knit about 9 rows again and can tell that somewhere in my walk, the stitches got twisted because I've got a mobieus. UGH!!!! For the THIRD time I'm in the process of casting on those 774 stitches, but I think this time I will knit flat until I've decreased enough to make sure there are no twists when I join in the round. Right now...it's the principle of the thing. I refuse to let this get the best of me.
Have any of you ever been this frustrated???
