I am knitting a sweater for my granddaughter. The first part is straightforward and I have completed it:
Pattern notes: This sweater is knit from the bottom up. The body is worked to the underarms, then it is set aside while both sleeves are worked. The body & sleeves are then joined as one for the yoke.
Directions: Body Using 16’’ circular needle, cast on 101(112,123,134) sts, pm, join in the round being careful not to twist. Work in st st until piece measures 6(7,8,9)’’ with the bottom edge rolled slightly (or to desired length).
What follows is the part I am having difficulty understanding. Can anyone clarify for me, step by step, exactly what I need to do?
Next rnd: k4(4,5,5) sts, place last 8(9,10,11) sts on a holder for the right underarm, removing marker (the sts put on the holder include the sts just knit, plus some sts from the previous rnd). K 51(56,62,67) sts, place last 8(9,10,11) sts on a holder for the left underarm. K across the front of the sweater to the first st holder. Set knitting aside with yarn still attached.
Thank you in anticipation of some clarity!!
