I’m knitting this sweater: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTtopsecret.html
It’s the first thing, other than hats, that I’ve tried to knit in the round.
Everything is going perfectly, but I’m soon coming to the part where I have to join the sleeves to the body, and I just don’t understand how.
The pattern says, “JOIN
Leaving 9 [9, 10, 10, 10] sts from each sleeve and 9 [9, 10, 10, 10] sts from each side of the body [diametrically opposed] on holders, put the sts from the sleeves and the body on the 32” size 10.5 needle, placing a marker after moving 20 [20, 20, 21, 22] sts from the first sleeve.
162 [168, 174, 182, 194] sts on needle."
First, I have no idea what, “diametrically opposed” means. :lol:
Can someone explain…or draw me a picture…using small words?
I just don’t get where to join the sleeves to the body and which stitches I have to leave on the holders.
