Dividing for the Neck on a Poncho

by jjuliart

Hello,

I can't understand my pattern. It is a Berroco pattern from booklet #365. It's called "Forest Floor"and it's for a poncho.

I have knitted from the bottom of the back up to where it splits for the neck and I will continue knitting the two separate parts for the front.

It is one continuous piece. The part I don't understand is:

Divide for Fronts: Next Row (RS): K42, join another hank of yarn and knit to end.

Do I join the new hank of yarn to the old one?

Or do I just stop knitting with the old hank and start knitting with the new one? I don't know exactly how to do that.

I would very much appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanking you in advance,
jjuliart



YOUR ANSWER


When the pattern tells you to join another hank of yarn, it is telling you to knit the remaining stitches in that row using a separate ball or hank of wool.

That way you now have two pieces of knitting on the one needle, each with it's own hank of wool which can be knitted simultaneously.

Usually I wait to tie off the tail until I have completed the next row, then I tie the two ends of the same hank together (the short tail and the tail connected to the hank). Then you continue knitting that same row on the second half of the stitches on your needle with the original hank of yarn.
