I'm working on a pullover, crewneck sweater (from an outdated pamphlet) and for the first time I've encountered the instructions for dividing for a neckline. there will be a left, center and right side division. I assume the two sides will go up higher and the center might be lower to allow for the scoop of a round neck ribbing? I have so many questions about how this will work... will I need separete balls of yarn to work each division upward? After the three sides are complete, how do they get joined together? will there be two seems on the sweater front (the photo doesn't show it) Here is some of what it says that I do not understand:
"Neck—Dividing Row—P and sl to holder for right side 29 sts.
p and sl to holder for neck 18 sts.
p for left side remaining 29 sts.
Left Side — Work 2 rows even, and at armhole edge.
Dec. Row—K to within 3 sts of end, k2tog, k1.
Repeat dec. row every 4th row 3 times.
Work even on remaining 25 sts and when armhole is
same lenght as back, shape shoulder same as for right side of back."
Right side — From wrong side, sl from holder to larger needle 29 sts.
From right side, join yarn at neck edge and work 2 rows even, end at neck edge.
Dec. Row—K1, SKP, k to end. Complete to correspond to left side, reverse shaping.
Neck — From wrong side, sl from holder to smaller needle 18 neck sts. From right side, beg. at left shoulder, with free smaller n eedle, pick up and knit along left neck edge 20 sts. k neck stitches, pick up and k along right neck edge to shoulder 20 sts. having on needle 58 sts. (then it finishes ribbing)...."
I'm having a hard time envisioning how the three sections seem back together aside from the ribbing connecting them at the top neckline. Any advice to accomplish this would be so appreciated.
Also, more basically, what is "P and sl to holder"?
Thanks for any knitting help!
