Hello All, I’m new to this site. I am quite an experienced knitter (41 years). I am knitting a jumper for a little boy but in this pattern there are terms I have never come across before so any help would be appreciated. I am doing the shoulders on the front and the instructions say
When work measures 23 (26-29-33) cm (9 [101⁄4- 111⁄2-13] in) [76 (86-96-110) rows total], leave the outside edge sts on hold every 2 rows as foll:
3 mths: 3 sts once, 4 sts twice.
6 mths: 4 sts 3 times.
12 mths: 4 sts once, 5 sts twice.
24 mths: 5 sts 3 times.
For each shoulder, pick up the 11 (12-14-15) sts left on hold, k 1 row, then cast off all the sts.
What on earth does this mean? I have never come across the term “leave the outside sts on hold”. I am doing the 3rd size (12 months).
