Pattern directions

I am splitting my sections for body. Here are my pattern directions: place next 36 stitches on holder, CO 6st, join yarn to back, k to next marker.
Do I CO 6 st then knit those or CO 6 to right needle and continue knitting on (not knitting the CO)
Thanks.

Use the working yarn to CO on the right needle. You can do a knitted or cable CO. A backward loop CO will work but might end up looking messy and is hard to work with. Then just continue knitting the remaining stitches. The working yarn will be at the end of the right needle and ready to go.

Thanks, done.
