Hi, I have nearly finished my first jumper (Edie by Kim Hargreaves) but I’m confused by the seaming/neckband instructions (not done this bit before).
to join ‘both’ front and right back raglan seams (so I think this means joining the armholes to the back and front on the right hand side only?).
Then pick up and knit from the top of the left sleeve and all the way round to the left side of the back neck, rib for 6 rows and cast off (not sure why, but the pattern seems to break up the pick up stitches to so many down shoulder, so many along neck, so many up other shoulder etc - I assume this is so I can gauge direction of stitches and where I might need to pick up more?)
Join left back raglan and neckband seam, then join side and sleeve seams.
So re: step 3. Am I meant to join the left sleeve raglan after doing the neckband (given step 1. says to join ‘both’ front and right back raglan seams), and why would I need to join the neckband seam in step 3. If I have already picked up the stitches to make the neckband?
A note that the pattern told me to cast off the neck on the front and back (so no stitches on a holder, which is all I seem to be able to find on the internet)
Any help much appreciated. It’s taken me ages to get to this stage, I’ve carefully blocked the pieces and it’s looking really lovely, so I don’t want to muck it up now!
