Pardon me, because this seems like such a silly question - I've looked in my books and all over the internet, and can't find an answer to this seemingly basic question.

See, I'm about to start knitting a Jayne Cobb hat, which requires knitting in the round. I've never knitted in the round before, but I'm told by everyone I talk to how easy it is. The thing is, nearly every knit-in-the-round project requires you to join your ends after casting on - HOW do you do so?

Again, I know this question seems silly, and I hope I'm posting it in the right section - but I would love an answer ASAP.

Thanks for your time!

cast on your stiches like normal. Hold one end of the needle in each hand. Once youve casted on make sure all the stiches are facing the same way. Now take the last stich on your Left needle and slip it onto your right needle. Then take the first stich, what is now the second stich on the Right needle and leapfrog it over the first stich on the right needle onto the Left needle. Youve made an X with your stiches. Great! Now start knitting like normal.
