pattern is "child's placket-neck pullover" from last minute knitted gifts
it asks after finishing knitting from bottom up in the round up to arm hole area
"on the next rnd, k4, place the last 8 sts worked on a stitch holder, removing the marker for end of rnd from the middle of these sts, k42 and place last 8 stitches on holder, k41 to end for front. leave sts on circ and set aside"
this is probably a simple thing. i am new to knitting and this is my first sweater. i have never known anyone to knit and have learned from you guys and amy's videos only. the problem i have is this
when i place stitches on holder, and am asked to k42, the yarn with which to knit is actually on the holder, not the circ. is this ok?
and what do i use for a holder exactly? i was using a spare circ.
