Hello everyone, I just caught the knitting bug and have finally expanded beyond the scarves I’ve been knitting for gift giving and decided to try my hand at a sweater. The pattern is fairly easy, it’s knitted in the round…its also my first attempt at circular knitting. I must say, I’ve done pretty well. So what’s my problem? I’ve come the the part in the pattern where the sleeves are to be attached and it indicates I should “Place next 20 sts on waste yarn, work across 88 sts, place next 20 sts on waste yarn, work to end of rnd.”
How does one place stitches on waste yarn while working stitches on the same round? I understand the concept of waste yarn, but how do i get the working yarn over to the 80 sts without working the 20?
Please help me. I would hate to turn 17 inches of sweater into a tube top and forever give up my dream of simple stylish sweaters.
