I am a beginner and working on my very first sweater. So far my prices look pretty good and I was able to figure it out. But now I am having problems understanding the pattern for the new neckband.
The pattern says:
From RS, with double pointed needles k15 bask sts from holder, k8 sleeve sts from holder, pick up and k9 sts along left front neck edge, k7 front neck sts from holder, pick up and k9 sts along right front edge, k8 sleeve sts from holder.
Divide sts onto double pointed needle.
My questions are:
Do I just pick up the sts from holder or do I somehow knit them back?
When I divide my sts on double pointed needles do I use 4 needles?
I never followed a pattern before and been able to figure it out so far by watching videos on sts I didn't know how to do but I am kinda stuck on this one. Hope someone can help me out.
