by Jan Wiesenfeld
(Sacramento, CA)

In beginning after knitting upper edge, the hem, it says next row (join hem): fold work in half, wrong sides tog.

Place first loop of CO edge onto left needle, Knit 2tog (the normal st. and the loop from the CO edge) Con in this manner across row.

Change to larger needle and & P one row.

Begin chart

I do not understand this at all.. I knit the beginning on straight needles. How to fold it in half?

Doesn't make sense.

YOUR ANSWER


It does make sense but not the way you are picturing it.

You don't fold it in half vertically, but horizontally. Fold the cast on edge up against the needle holding all of your stitches.

Then as you work across the next row you pick up one stitch off the cast on edge and knit it and the next stitch on your needle together.

Or if you want to you can cheat.

If the though of picking up the stitches from the cast on edge is not working for you, you can just do 2 rows in stocking stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) and hand sew the hem down when you have finished knitting your stocking.
