Circular needle blanket pattern help!
Hi! This is my first post, I hope I posted in the correct forum but here goes:
I am starting to knit a blanket used with all of my scrap yarn Iíve collected recently.
It instructs you to user circular needles and to join the ends together. Iíve used circular needles before but only when used like straight needles but this is the first time that I had to really knit in the round.
I started to knit it and went through my first color, but I somehow ended up twisting it while I was knitting. But when I took it off the circular needles (because I had no idea on how to fix the twist that happened) it came off in a circle. I guess Iím confused on how this is supposed to end up being a blanket when itís being knit like its a tube and comes off the needles like that?? Any insight/comments/help would be appreciated.
Also, this may be a silly question, but on the pattern it says to slip the stitch between the two stitch makers on alternate rounds in the middle of the blanket, does that mean to slip that stich every other time?
Any help would be appreciated Iíd really like to make this blanket to use up all the scrap yarn Iíve collected. Plus itíll be a great addition in my new home!!
