I was wondering if somebody could help me with this.
I am knitting a beautiful jumper by Lene Holme Samsoe. It is called “Cille” and is knitted in the round on circular needles (you start in the middle and slowly add to the circle as you go along). I am knitting the front part and have come to the part where I have to start shaping the neck and I just don’t understand the pattern.
Knit 6. Move the outer 29 stitches from the right needle onto a stitch holder and knit each side seperately by knitting back and forth on circular needles.
Row 73 (right side): Cast off 2 st (1 stitch is now on your right needle), knit 25 etc. and then the pattern carries on.[/I]
There are several things I don’t understand. Up until now, I have been knitting in the round. Do I knit the first 6 and then start knitting back and forth? Also, if I put the first 29 stitched (I assume the 6 stitches I just knitted are part of these 29?) from my right needle onto a stitch holder, my working yarn is then in the middle of everything and I don’t know how to carry on.
Also, why are they highlighting that 1 stitch is on my right needle after the cast off?
I’m sorry, this is probably something that is fairly simple to do, I just can’t picture how it would work.
I hope you can help.
Thank you very much in advance.
