Thank you the video really helped and now that I have the shoulder seams sewn together. I am ready to start work on the collar it states using # 7 circular needle pick up 12 sts down left side of neck, (if I understand this is the side closer to the neck opposite the sleeve side) work stitches from holder in pattern,12 sts to shoulder seam, pick up 10 sts down side of neck work stitches from holder in pattern, pick up 10 sts from other side of neck. If I understand these instructions all this work is done on the neck edge, and do you know of a good video to pick up the sts using a circular needle?
