Hallo!  I have a question about an online pattern for making a knitted ball.  I found this pattern: http://www.knitlist.com/95gift/val.htm and am really confused...

I don't get how you can knit 20 sts and leave 8 on the needle, then knit 12 and leave 8 on the needle??  I just don't  understand what this means...

It doesn't say anything about using circular needles, but is that just a given?  Or are the #4 needles normal straight ones?

I'm a complete beginner and don't even know how to read patterns, so I know I'm way ahead of myself...but I was just wondering if someone could help me a bit?

THANKS!!!!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

 Ill try my best to help you. You have 28 stitches you knit 20 of them and leave 8 of them alone You turn your work around and knit 12 stiches and leave the other 8 alone and turn your work around. Its short row shaping  Grin Did I help?
