I am new here.  I am knitting a baby hat.  Directions say provisional cast on and I knit on the crochet chain I get all that but what I am not clear of is I have taken out the chain and put the stitches on circular needles so i have 2 sets but I don't know how to join them.  any suggestions would help.  I watched the tutorial for provision cast on I get it but it doesn't tell me what to do once I have the stitches on needles. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What pattern are you using? Is it one that's online that we can look at?
no it is on the skein of yarn.  what it tells me to do is cast on 73 stitches using the provisional cast on.  join in round and knit 3 rows.  next row is yarn over knit 2 together.  next 3 rows knit. now take out crochet chain and pick up stitches on another set of needles and join with your top stitches.  Not sure correct directions for this last row.  I don't have it with me right now.

Is it kind of like this pattern where you're making a double thickness layer for either just over the ears or for the whole hat?


It also sounds to my that you are basically doing a brim that is essentially doubled up, with the yo's and k2tog creating a sort of picot edging for the hat.

so essentially you will now have a set of stitches on one needle at the bottom and a matching set of stitches on another needle at the top. fold it in half, the yo/k2tog row should be the middle, match up the beginnings of your round on the top and bottom needle and simply knit those two stitches together - for example, it will be like doing a k2tog with one stitch from your top needle and one stitch from the other needle. Then, you will be back to your original number of stitches and you have joined the brim, doubling it up.

that is it...oh my gosh!  Jenny you see it you're amazing!

thank you!

Super! Glad to hear that helped...I know things can get easily lost in translation when it comes to knitting :)
