I’m in the middle of my first time knitting a sweater and the pattern has confused me. First, I knit the back in stockinette until it was a big rectangle, pretty simple. Then the pattern gives me instructions for “Shoulders and Collar.”
CO 12 sts, and K next 30 sts. BO remaining stitches.
Slide remaining stitches from back to a stitch holder for collar.
So I cast off 12 stitches, then I knitting 30. However, there weren’t enough stitches so I had to cast on stitches to the end. Then I bound off the remaining stitches, which left me with a long sticking out line of stitches and the other half bound off.
Next, after making another rectangle for the front, the pattern says to make the collar by “putting the collar stitches from front and back on needles. Joinn into a round and K for 2 in. BO all stitches.”
I think I did something wrong to my back piece because it doesn’t seem like I should really join the two pieces together.
Please help if you can! Thanks.
