Pattern calls for sweater to start ... knit front ... and then back ... and THEN join in round.

No problem w/join in round ... but how do I knit front and then back (calls for cn) on needles? Anyone know of a good video? I am a little retarded so bear with me please?

Oh! attached is a blanket I just finished that is 80" w and 88" L shown on my queensize bed. Pattern was Kingsize Farmhouse Blanket.
This is crochet and e-z pattern.

Beautiful blanket. Are you joining in the round for the neck?

How much do you knit while flat? Maybe you have vents on the sides or uneven front/back. If there are no vents or other design items and the hem is even, I would start ITR. The heck with 2 balls of yarn.

Often if you give us the pattern & designer name we can make better suggestions.

Perhaps I'm really not understanding this, but first, you knit the front, like the whole front, then you knit the whole back and then you join in the round. Again, at least the pattern name would help immensely.

oops Is this top-down or bottom-up? I assumed bottom-up.

That is one huge, but really gorgeous, blanket for your bed!! I would love to make something like this, but don't know if I could handle the size and weight of it. Any special tips for working on such an enormous piece? I love the colors you used, too!!

I don't think I've ever seen a blanket pattern for ninety-nine cents before now.

Your blanket is gorgeous!! Is the pattern top down, joining at the underarms perhaps?? Please post a link so we can be of better help.

Does your pattern have a yoke section at the top?
If so, you will make the front, back and sleeves until they measure a certain length, (keeping stitches on a holder/spare needle) before transfering the stitches onto circular needles.
This will then be knit in the round.
