I am knitting a dicky on round needles. However the instructions do not say how to end it - cast off. Never knitted in the round before -how does a person finish - just sew the 2 sides together?
it sounds as though you did not knit in a circular method....did you knit to the end of the row and then flip your work and do the next row on the other side as if you were on straight needles....let us know and we can help better....knitting in the round implies that you joined the ends of your knitting on the first round and then knit in circles for the whole item.....which one sounds closest to your method.....people do both so either is correct, they would just finish differently...chocolate said:I am knitting a dicky on round needles.

right...we all use our circular needles to knit flat, it's so much more convenient to have just one needle, but if the pattern was in a 'Knitting Around Book', it probably wanted you to knit 'in the round'.....that's why there was no further instruction after 'cast off.', the book thought it was done....but all is good, just seam it as you would normally, mattress or kitchener stitch and enjoy....chocolate said:I am knitting on round needles, but I can lay the knitting out flat. The end says to get to 26 stitches and cast off. Then no other instructions. That is why I assume I have to sew the 2 ends together. The pattern is in Knitting Around book.
