I’m taking a knitting class and knitting my 1st raglan-sleeve sweater. My class is Tue evenings. Last Tue, I began shaping the neck. I had 60 stitches on the needle. I worked 19, put 22 on a stitch holder, then worked 19. Then, I began working both sides at the same time. I didn’t finish this until I was home after class. I continued until I had 3 stitches on each needle (per the pattern). I was left with one stitch on each needle. The pattern says to put the remaining stitches on a pin. It did not say how many stitches should be remaining. Does one stitch on each needle sound right?
Next question: Since I’ve never done this before, I don’t know what to expect. The front (the section I’m working on) now comes up to two points on each side with 22 stitches on a stitch holder beteen those points. Is that right? How does that attach to the back?
I am a visual learner. I wish I had a photo documenting each step in the process!
Any comments would be greatly appreciated, since I wont see my knitting instructor until 03/11/08.
