Waste Yarn - Help with Son of Stitch 'n Bitch Smokin Jacket

I’m attempting to knit a cardigan from Son of Stitch 'N Bitch. I finished the bottom edge and the next instruction says “K to last 8 stitches and place those onto wy.” I’m not really sure what this means. I’m thinking I’m dropping the 8 stitches cuz I will need them to make the button hole/button edges. Do I just put them onto some waste yarn? It doesn’t seem like they will be able to be reattached to the rest of the garment. Thanks for any help. :slight_smile:

Yes, just put them on waste yarn. I suspect that you’ll knit the band separately and have to sew it on later. Check further along in the pattern and see what you have to do with those 8.

i did look ahead . . . . but not far enough! "Finishing: Sew button bands and collar to sweater body. . . . "
