circular needles - HELP!!
i am trying to get an afghan started and it my first time using these kinds of needles. the first couple rows of cast on and knit are fine. at the end of this last row, i can still hold stretch the needles separate as if it is one long row. the problem is the next row from there. at the end of the row, there is yarn connecting where it looks like i am now working in a circle. obviously, if i continued on like this it would be one big tube. i keep pulling the yarn out back to row 2 where everything was ok and still getting the same results. here are the directions and the problem always starts with row 2.
cast on 107 stitches. do not join.
row 1 knit
row 2 K1, P7, *K7, P7; rep from * to last st; K1
row 3 knit
I get as far as cast on and row 1 and all is fine. the problem is after row 2. what am i doing wrong?
