I know I’m probably missing something obvious with this pattern, but…
I’m knitting: http://magknits.com/Mar07/patterns/berry.htm this tshirt
I’m fine until it comes to joining the sleeves to the body. I’m doing a size 4, so you understand my numbers. (I’ve removed the numbers which don’t pertain to the size I’m knitting for clarity):
“[B]Join sleeves to body[/B]
Return to body and knit 52 sts (front), put the next 11 sts on scrap yarn, place marker, k34 sts from first sleeve onto body needle, place marker, k52 sts of body (back), put next 11 sts on scrap yarn, place marker, k34 sts from second sleeve; place a marker of a different color, to indicate beginning of round. There are 172 sts on the needle”
Now, my problem is this. I have 45 sts for the sleeves NOT only 34 like they say, and don’t see anything about decreasing. Where do the other 11 (or rather 22) sts from the sleeves go? The 11 sts mentioned seem to be from the body of the shirt, and the count is correct for them to be from the body.
What am I missing here?
