(edit to add: Here, is a new link with step by step pictures
Perhaps it would help to visit the website where I found the first spiral crochet image you see in my previous post.
Oh, I didn't make a link to the woolly wormhead
Sorry about that.
Curl the work around as if to join but instead of joining, you simply start the next round by working in the top of the first stitch of the first round. This creates a jog that makes the end of previous round even with the start of the next round to form a spiral.
Does that help?
I have not found anything like this in knitting; knitting just magically
matches up. Knitting doesn't need any chains to raise the needle up to the next row level like crochet.
But, just like when you move a CO from straight to circ. (or DPN's) take care that you don't twist it.
Really, it is quite simple, I can't believe no-one has done a video or has a picture with enough detail. Just trust the pattern and coil the first round like this '@' and continue.
