I'm in the process of making the teddy bear from the book, Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Soon I'll be at the point where I'll be working on the 'Bear Head'. I've only been knitting for around 5 months now and so, I don't understand Rnd 28:, on page 107. (Rnd 28 of the Head)
It's the transferring part that I just don't get.
Also when I'm supposed to pass the 2nd st on left-hand needle over the transferred st, does that mean that I pass it right off of the needle? Is it like doing a decrease?
I would be so very grateful if somebody could possibly explain this process to me, in detail.
I was also curious if anybody has made these toys using double strands of worsted weight yarn and if so, what needle size you used? Please would you mind letting me know whether your needle size was in mm or in US sizing.
The only 2 circulars that I had the same size, was way too small. The knitting is so tight that it hurts my hands.
So if I plan on making more of these in the future, I've got to buy another circular. I'd like the knitting to be fairly snug so that you don't see any stuffing, but not too tight.
Thank you very much to anybody, who can help me out with these questions.
