I am working on a sweater knit in the round. I have completed the body and the live sts are on a scrap yarn.
I have completed a sleeve and the yarn was cut and live sts placed on yarn. The pattern said to leave enough yarn when breaking to graft 4 sts. I have never grafted before.
Now I am working on the other sleeve and this yarn won’t be broken, but then matched up with the body and then it says to-
join the two pieces by working the twisted k st of the sleeve to the twisted k st of the body. Work across sweater front keeping the pattern correct. K twisted st at right body front tog with twisted K st of right sleeve. Work across rt sleeve os sts, place 2 purl sts of body side “seam” on holder, and ssk twisted k st of sleeve tog with first twisted k st of body back. Work across sweater back, keeping pattern correct. K twisted body and left sleeves tog, place 2 purl sts of body side “seam” and 2 purl sts of sleeve underarm “seam” on holders, and work across left sleeve sts to complete round. Work one round even.
My questions may seem silly, but when I knit on dpn’s, the pretty side is on the inside of the circ made by my dpns, so when I join these pieces, am I doing them inside out? (sounds silly I know)
Also, when I am joining these live sts, am I just doing that like k2tog? I have never joined live sts before, just pick up and knit.
And. . .it doesn’t say about the grafting sts, am I right in assuming that these 2 purl sts placed on a holder are the ones being grafted?
Gosh. . .confused.
BTW- the pattern is Leif’s Twisted Tree Pullover
