Hey Bev! I didn't quite know where to ask this question so excuse for the odd placing. http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/buddybears.htmlI am currently knitting that teddy bear and it is quite lovely, but I am somewhat a beginner to knitting. I don't quite understand what to do for the arms. How do I cast on 8 stitches onto both sides of my knitting? Does it mean to simply cast on 8 stitches to the beginning of my knitting, knit to the end, then cast on 8 more stitches onto the 'new' beginning?Thanks for your help!
You are fine posting here hon, although I am more likely to answer questions sent directly to my email from my main page of my website. Just click where it says my name and that brings up a page where you can write to me. Ok- onto your question,You will cast on 8 stitches just as you did when you started casting on to start knitting. I cast on by knitting into the stitch I already have, but any cast on method should work.So as you knit across now, you have a T BUT it only has one 'arm'. After you knit across that row, then when you start to come back, cast one 8 more stitches for the other arm.I hope that makes sense.Have a great day!Bev
Wow. Very true quote. YOUCH!
