OK. I have (I believe) followed your instructions ie knit 86, bo 12sts for armhole (which I did as if BO in the middle of my stream of knitting) and then knitted 80 sts. Now looking at videos on the net I think I have done my last BO 12sts incorrectly. My questions is should I have knitted those 12 sts as normal, turned it over and BO on the reverse side so that the yarn will be at the beginning of armhole 2? I'm halfway through knitting the sleeves and am contemplating the pattern and how the sleeves will fit in on the round with my body section and the positioning of the yarn to start.
BTW the pattern for the Sleeves is
"With dpns, CO 72 sts. Dividide sts evenly over needles, pm and join to work in the rnd. Work in 2 x 2 Rib for 1 3/4".
Divide for Armholes: BO6 sts, work to last 6 sts. BO 6 sts - 60 rem. Slip sts to st holder. Break yarn."
That all seems to be going ok.
The pattern for the Yoke
"Joining Rnd. With longer circular needle, RS facing and yarn attached to body, beg with front, work 80 sts in est rib, pm work 60 sts from sleeve in est riv, pm, work 80 sts from back in est rib, pm, work 60sts from sleeve in est rib, pm for new BOR - 280 sts. Next rnd: Work even as est."
