Can someone please help me out with this portion of the pattern???
[color=red]With RS facing, place held sts from Right Front (Buttonhole Band sts) on needle and join yarn. Work these sts in Seed Stitch as set, then pick up 6 sts along the lower neck edge. (Note: you will not be picking up sts all the way up the neck edge, only in the first 6-8 rows.) 11 sts on needle.
Work in Seed Stitch until work is long enough to reach along the neck edge to the center back of the neck. Place sts on holder.[/color]
So, I get my 5 stitches from my holder, knit one row, then knit another row, picking up one stitch, and repeat this until I have 11 stitches?? I pick up a stitch from the edge of the sweater, right, not M1 or some other increase? Okay, so if I’ve got that part correct, then once I have 11 st., then it sounds like I just knit a long, skinny flappy collar that isn’t connected to the sweater, except for the 11 st. at the beg. Is that what it sounds like to everyone else???
It just sounds really weird, so I just wanted to make sure that this is the way it’s supposed to be done… :??
