This is probably the reason I have NEVER finished a sweater! I just don’t understand! But I am determined this time and I hope someone here can help.
I’m working on a cardigan style sweater, so there are two pieces to the front. If anyone has the book “The Children’s Collection” by A & J Starmore–I’m working the Child’s Mendocino Sweater. Anyway, the directions say, “With RS facing and 4 mm needles, beg at right front and pick up and k the 5 sts from holder; knit up 10 sts evenly along right side of neck, pick up sts from saddle, pick up sts from back, pick up from left saddle, knit up 10 sts along left side of neck, pick up and k the sts from left front neck holder.”
So, what has me stumped is if RS is facing, which side do I start on? The side to my right if I were facing the person wearing it? Or the side that would be on the right if I were wearing it?
And do I pick up all the stitches first and then knit them? Or do I knit them as I go? What needle is this gonna end up on? KWIM?
I can’t for the life of me figure this out!
HELP! PLEASE! LOL!
Oh and the next row should end up a WS row to start my ribbing.
