I am quite new to knitting and this is the first sweater I ever knit (my gift for a baptism). It looks great and will be utterly adorable on this adorable little girl, all that’s left is knitting the sleeves and I am stuck…
Here is the sleeve part of the pattern:
Place 29 (32, 34, 37 // 37, 39, 41, 43, 45) held sts onto dpns, dividing sts on the needles evenly. Joining yarn at underarm, pick up and knit 2 sts, place BORm, pick up and knit 2 sts (you’ve picked up a total of 4 sts: two underarm cast on stitches plus 1 stitch on each side of the cast on section).
You have: 33 (36, 38, 41 // 41, 43, 45, 47, 49) sts.
Knit until 3 sts remain before m, ssk, knit to m, slm, k1, k2tog, knit to end of round. You have: 31 (34, 36, 39 // 39, 41, 43, 45, 47) sts.
Knit until 3 sts remain before m… how am I supposed to do that if it isn’t attach yet?
Also, I do not understand how to proceed with the stiches already on my needles.
I have watched tutorials on knitting sleeves, and they all start up with bare needles and pick up the stitches as they go.
If anyone can help me or point me to a tutorial using this method, I would greatly appreciate!
Thank you for reading
