Ok...I am working on a sweater, designed like a blazer, working on the sleeves, and just need some advice. Has anyone seen this term before, and exactly how do I do it? The sleeve is being knitted in two seperate sections, with buttonholes on one side. So far so good. Now comes time to join them. The back section was knitted and placed on a holder, then the front section was knitted.
Now, the directions say:
Leaving fron section on left needle, work 1st 18 stitches from back section holder; lap 1st 5 sts of front section over last 5 sts of back section and, working through both thicknesses, k 2 tog, work across remaining 18 stitches of front section....
So...what do they mean by lapping the stitches? Do I alternately place them together on the needle and knit together?
Any help would be appreciated.
