I'm hoping someone can help me out! This pattern indicates you do one ear flap, break the yarn and do the second ear flap. At the end of the second ear flap, I'm NOT supposed to break the yarn. At that point, the instructions for the joining row are: with smaller needles cast on 6 stitches, k16 from second ear flap, cast on 36 stitches, k16 across 1st ear flap, cast on 6 stitches.
Since the ear flaps are already on the smaller needles, I'm getting confused about what I'm doing on what needle.
Do I have both ear flaps on one needle? Then are the cast on stitches on another needle? Or, do I cast them on the end of the needle with the ear flaps, then knit through them before knitting through the sear flap...???
Any help most appreciated...thanks!!!!
