Been gone from the forums for ages working on the “swirl” from the book “Knit Swirl”. Had to frog and restart it twice so it’s taken several months. Am finally blocking it right now! Yay!
So, I’m picking up the kimono vest I started months ago and am cornfused about the directions. I actually called Crystal Palace Yarns and they’re closed Fri-Mon… naturally ><.
Pattern is here http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns2/merino5-kimonoVest.html
I am probably being very dense. I am at the armhole part. Says, "Place removable marker at beg and end of row to mark beg of armhole. Work in pattern until armhole measures… " and there it completely loses me. There’s no casting on of additional stitches so I don’t see how placing markers at the beg and end of the row does anything at all. No magical armhole will develop from placing markers at the beginning and ending of the row it just continues to form the back piece.
Can anyone tell me what I’m missing?
