I am hoping that someone here can give me a hand. I am a total newbie and have only completed a scarf and hat, so I really have no idea what I am doing. I am attempting to knit a sweater for my dog from this pattern minus the hood, so I started the pattern from page 4:
the directions for the armholes instruct to:
- knit 6, bind off 5, knit to last 11, bind off 5, knit to end
- working all 3 sides at the same time, work for 1/2 in. (or length you obtained from measuring the dog)
- knit 6, cast on 5, knit 2nd section, cast on 5, knit to end
I am stuck at ‘working all 3 sides at the same time’. The garment is worked flat with one seam running from neck to tummy. So instruction No. 1 gives me 1/2 of the bottom on each side of my needle and the stitches in the middle go on the back of the dog. Do I remove each section to stitch holders and work them all separate then move on to instruction No.3 thereby connecting everything back together?
I hope what I wrote makes sense. Thank you so much for the help. I don’t know if the pattern is vague or if I am just that clueless.
