Hello!

I am trying to make some doknits, but I am stymied! 

Original post & tutorial:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50195.0

I have gotten to the point where I'm ready to weave together and bind off the beginning and end of the doknit (the last picture in the tutorial post), but I can't figure out what to do.  I think I've been staring at it too long... can anyone provide any guidance for me??

Thanks!!

In the last picture, if I've interpreted what you've done correctly, is the top edge of your tube pushed into the tube and matched up with the bottom.

The doknit is then flipped, and another set of needles is used to take the top stitches off the waste yarn.  She then recommends you weave or graft the stitches together -- this is done with a tapestry needle.  The other alternative isi the 3-needle bind-off (see http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php, scroll down to Finishing).
