I have just finished knitting all the pieces for my Winter Spice Cardigan found in Simply Knitting Issue 48 December 2008. I do not understand how to join raglan seams due to the following directions for the collar, it includes picking up sts on the sleeve????? I should mention that the sleeves are not exactly the same the left sleeve and right sleeve have specific shaping. here is what the directions say:
Join Raglan seams
With RS facing miss the last 5 rows of buttonhole band, pick up and K4 sts from rem row ends, 18sts from neck edge, [COLOR=red]46sts from right sleeve, [/COLOR][COLOR=black]40sts from back neck, [/COLOR][COLOR=#ff0000]46sts from left sleeve, [/COLOR][COLOR=black]18sts from left front neck edge, and 4sts from first 4 rows of buttonhole band.[/COLOR]
I am at a loss because for one the sleeves DO NOT fit in the armholes, how am I supposed to pick up 46sts on the sleeves for the collar?
Any help would be appreciated!
