Another newbie here!
I'm working on longies for my baby (we cloth diaper). Here's the pattern:
I'm at the legs, but am confused. It looks like in the pattern that I'm basically decreasing stitches until the leg is long enough, but how do I start the other leg? And this might sound really silly, but it looks small- what I've knitted so far looks like just the front of the pants. Am I knitting the back later and then joining them together? (I'm taking this one row at a time right now and looking up what I don't understand!). Also, should I have used circular needles? TIA!
