Being careful that the sts are not twisted, pass the first CO (cast on) st to the left needle, then bring the working yarn to the back between the needles and pass the first CO st back to the right hand needle. You have now joined in the round.There is one thing that I added to the designers instructions. After I cast on the stitches I turned the work. Then I was ready to join. This is the only way you can pass the first cast on stitch to the left needle. I described the instructions to Lynn this morning and she commented that it is like a wrap and turn.
I spent the afternoon visiting my dentist. 45 minutes for a cleaning and then I had to have fillings replaced. I wish there was some way that I could knit while sitting in the chair. A real waste of time.
Watch an episode of Survivor and you can get a lot of knitting accomplished.
