Hi all. I hope someone can help. I am working on finger puppets but I am confused on the last step. I don't understand how to join the cast on and bound with the edges together. Can someone help? Thank you Huh

Trunk: CO 13 sts using #6 needles and gray yarn. Work in garter stitch for 5 rows and then BO all. Join cast on and bound off edges together.

Sounds like you have to join them together by seaming..

Try www.knittinghelp.com - look under basic techniques, "and more.." and look under seaming. hopefully it'll help a bit Smiley (otherwise if its for finger puppets I spose you can just sew the edges together any way you know how..)

Once you have cast-on, knitted, and bound off you have a square or rectangular piece of "knit fabric". You are simply going to fold it in half with the cast-on and bound-off edges on top of each other. The sew those two edges together.

You should end up with a tube that is open on both ends, the garter ridges should should run the length of the tube NOT around the tube.

You can sew the edges together using any method. Basically thread some yarn through a large needle and sew. Knittinghelp.com (link posted above) will show you how if you want a particular method.
