wonderpants pattern Q [Jul. 10th, 2008|01:50 pm]
We are here to help!


In the pattern, when it calls for me to attach a new ball of yarn for the magic loop method for the legs...

How do I DO that?????!! Am I just a dork?

here is what it says....

**Using your 40” needle, knit to two stitches before marker B. On those last two stitches,
knit 2 together (K2tog). Pass marker to right needle. Consider the stitches you have just
completed the BACK of LEG 1.
ATTACH A NEW BALL OF YARN. You’ll be using this new ball for Leg 2, beginning at
marker B as follows: SSK, knit to marker C.

Drop the old ball of yarn, and then, just like if you were switching colors or if you'd run out of yarn in the middle of the row, pick up the new ball of yarn, leave a tail, and start knitting!

i like to leave the tail really long for sewing the crotch hole closed, and i also tie a square knot to the working yarn after knitting two stitches.

Ok, So .... I make a new loop and attach that to the needle? Or... attach the new yarn to the old yarn- with a tail..???

Nope, put your right needle in the next loop on the left, but instead of drawing through the old yarn, draw through the new yarn. Old yarn lives on leg #1 and does not leave it. New yarn belongs only to leg #2. :)
