I'm new to knitting and struggling to understand the instructions for the neck of the sweater.
Shape neck opening:
Next row (RS): K49, slip last 16 sts worked onto stitch holder for center neck, k33.
How do I put the 16 stitches on the stitch holder and continue knitting on the other side? I'm using straight needles at the moment but am thinking that I might need circular needles for this.
Thanks very much in advance!
