Greetings! I am making a pattern called the Sleeveless Tunic/Dress from the Handknitting Association of Iceland. It is a sleeveless sweater knit in the round from the bottom up. I have reached the point where I am to place the live sleeve stitches on a holder, and soon I will cast on for the yoke (the pattern reminds me of an Ann Budd seamless yoke sweater).
Here’s where I am confused: the pattern says "sl last 4 st of rnd for first 4 sts of next rnd onto stitch holder (the sleeve opening). K 45, sl 8 st onto stitch holder (the other sleeve). K back 47. st.
Work 4 rows back and forth in st st (K right side, P wrong side) on back and front, sl first st of each row.
The next part is the yoke, where I cast on for the shoulders and continue in the round. But how do I go back and forth? Do I break the yarn and work from separate balls? Thank you for any help you can provide!!
