Sweater/Shawl

I am knitting a sweater/shawl “Thing”. I cast on 200 sts. knit 2 purl 2 for 3" then k2 together p2 together so there will be 100 sts. then I k1 p1 for 10 ". NOW it says to cast on 50 st each end of the needle for sleeves. Do I cast on the first 50 sts. turn and carry along the yarn or start a new ball of yarn for the other 50 sts. I’m new at this , it just sounds confusing.
Any help would be great Thanks

I don’t know if this is what the pattern has in mind, but I would knit across that last row, and cast on fifty. Then I would turn it and knit across the fifty, the middle, and then cast on fifty more at the end of that row. The extra row of knitting on the first sleeve really won’t be noticeable, in my opinion.

Thanks, that makes sense… I will let you know how it turns out. :wink:
