Day 113: WHAT exactly do I need to do with that stick?

I have three times ripped out this pattern which is supposed to have a swirling pattern within a square knit block. I am having problems because I am supposed to start with two cast-on stitches on each of four double ended needles...then WHAT exactly am I supposed to do with that fifth stick that I know I need to use, but the pattern doesn't tell me how! I have pictures, but I am too frustrated to go deal with downloading pictures my avid readers will just have to wait.

This block may very well give me so much trouble that I may give up and move on.....I hate admitting defeat by an inanimate object.

  2. Hi, the fifth needle is used to knit on to. Use it in your right hand and knit from one of the other needles. When all the stitches are knit you now have an empty needle again, so switch this to your right hand again and start knitting the next side of the square. Hope this answers your question?
    Loving your blog
    Take care
