I’m knitting my DH an Aran sweater from Men in Knits. Since DH’s birthday is coming up, I thought I’d finish his Aran sweater that was supposed to be completed a year ago!
And, here is where I’m stuck:
Beginning at inner corner of armhole notch, pick up and knit 72 stitches from one armhole notch to the other. On the next row (WS), work as follows: pm between st panels were indicated: Work 32 sts seed st, pm, k2, p4, k2, pm, work 32 sts seed st. On the next row, work 32 sts seed, 8 sts from Row 1 of sleeve cable chart, 32 seed st.
Here are the questions:
I don’t understand the first sentence of the instructions. If I pick up stitches from one armhole notch to the other, aren’t I closing up the armhole?
Do the following sentences of the instructions equate to me starting at the top of the shoulder and work my way down and then up?
