I’ve joined this group because I am knitting my first sweater and I’ve reached a point where I need some help.
I am knitting the Worsted Boxy by Joji in size medium - https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/worsted-boxy
The pattern has instructions for a seam and seamless version and I chose the seamless version on circular needles. I am finished with knitting the body and I am now dividing the work for the armholes. I have 240 stitches on my needles and the next part of the pattern reads:
Divide work for armholes:
Next row (RS): K1, m1r, k 110 (118, 118, 118, 132, 132, 132), m1l, k1, turn work. The stitches you have just worked will be your front stitches. You can put the rest of the st on hold until
you work your back.
Next row (WS): P1, m1p, p to 1 st before the end of row, m1p, p1. 116 (124, 124, 124, 138, 138, 138) st remain.
Continue working in stockinette stitch until piece now measures 21½ (21¾, 22¼, 24¼, 24¾, 26, 26½) inches; 53½ (54, 55½, 60½, 61½, 65, 66½) cm from the CO edge.
Work the rest of the front as for the seamed version, starting with the section Shape Neckline (Both Versions) found on p.2.
My question is, do I need to switch to regular needles for this part? Any suggestions on the right way to divide work for armholes would be so appreciated (ie. what do I do with stitches on hold - keep them on my circular needles until I’m ready for them? etc).
