I made the ear warmer with worsted weight yarn (actually a caron cake). I am a little confused with the directions at the end. If the needles are in 1x1 position, how do you set up the 12 needles and put the stitches from the main bed and ribber on them? I am not seeing this in my head. Also, do you hand seam the ear warmer by hand? By the way, it came out very well except at the end. Waiting for a reply to finish it.
it is late and i just saw your comment..ok you cast on 25 st 1x1 rib..so that means you have 13 st on main bed and 12 on the ribber ,,right? ok when you get done knitting you will transfer the ribber stitches to the mainbed BUT dont put them on the empty needles double them up ..starting with the 2nd stitch .so you now have 2 stitches on your mainbed needles ..i take the first stitch on the main bed and move it over to the next needle ..that one now has 3 stitches on it ...so you now have 12 stitches right ?
Now you will take your CO row from the other end where you started bring them up and hang them on those 12 needles too..you can just hang them on there you dont have to do stitch by stitch ,,....than i knit one row at a larger tension and than crochet it off or whatever your preferred way is ....i hope that helps ..
