Hooded Sweater confusion

Please help, I am knitting a hooded sweater and am stuck at the beginning of the hood part. The pattern says: Join raglan sleeves. then cast on 16 stitches, with rs facing using same needle and yarn work across stitches already left on stick holder. What does this mean?

What pattern are you making? Can you give us a link to it or to a photo?
You’ll likely have to cast the 16sts on a needle, then take that needle in you right hand and work across the held sts for the fronts, sleeves and back, then maybe cast on more sts at the end. It’ll help to see the pattern though to make sure.

Thank you, I think I’ve got it now.
