I’m Cindy and I’m a beginning knitter whose skills are advancing rapidly. I taught myself how to knit just last month and each day my skills grow.
Currently, I am knittng a baby sweater and came across instructions that I don’t understand entirely that not even any of my knitting books can answer. Here are the directions:
“[B]Divide for Fronts, Back, and Sleeves: Next row:[/B] K23 for right front. Cast on 4 sts. Slip next 36 onto length of yarn for right sleeve. K50 for back. Cast on 4 sts. Slip next 36 on length of yarn for left sleeve. K23 for left front. 104 sts for body.”
I understand the K(#). When I cast on in the middle of knitting, how is that done? Also, what does it mean to “slip onto length of yarn”? I know how to do slip sts. This is a little different.
