Okay, I finally figured out how to make the ear flaps. So, I made 2 and they are on holders.
Now, the next step is really confusing to me. I need an easy to understand translation of what to do.
I am wanting to knit this on circular needles.. so bear that in mind..
Earflaps (make 2)
Knit, purl, knit into stitch (=3st)
KFB, knit to last stitch, KFB
Repeat last 2 rows until 15 (17,21,23)st ending on a purl row. Break yarn. Place stitches on a holder (or spare needle).
CO 9 (10,12,13) knit across 15(17,21,23)stitches from holder, CO 16 (18,22,26) stitches, knit across 15(17,21,23) stitches from 2nd earflap, CO 9 (10,12,13) stitches (=64(72,88,98) stitches)#
The bolder part is where I am at and I confused. Any explanation would be appreciated!!!
