Everytime I try to follow this
pattern, I end up starting over.
This is where I am getting confused:
Cast 89 stitches onto the long straight needle. (Yes, I said 89. Trust me.)
Knit 2, Purl 2 onto the size 6 circulars.
I did this.
When you get to stitch #89, slip it onto the other needle.
Ok, I was working the yarn, knitting two and purling two. Then I got to the last stitch, which I am assuming is stitch #89. I slipped it onto the other needle, with the rest of the other stitches. Am I right??
Knit 2 together (ie: the “extra stitch” and the first knit stitch in the next round)
This is what I did last time, but I don't think I am supposed to knit the two together that I knitted together before. Which two stitches should I be combining? Should I be making a circle out of the straight line I am working? I have no idea which two stitches to combine...
Knit 1, Purl 2
Knit 2, Purl 2 all the way around
Place a stitch marker inbetween stitches #88 & #1
Knit 2, Purl 2 for 6-10 more rounds.
