I've just received my first sweater kit - fleece artist's raglan sweater kit. . ..and it's a bottom up pattern. I had to knit in the round for 14.5 inches, with 160 stitches on the needles, using 2 balls of yarn, using 1 ball for 1 round then the other for the 2nd until I had the required length. Here's where I'm stuck:
Divide for Sleeves
Round 1: *Knit 70 sts and slide next 10 sts on a holder for underarm gussett *repeat from * to * for other side.
Round 2: *Knit 70 sts and cast on using a provisional cast on with contrasting yarn 40 sts* for first sleeve. Repeat from * to * for second sleeve.
Round 3: Knit all 220 sts now on needle.
So when I do round 1, am I supposed to have like the 1st 70 stitches done, and then the 10 on a holder, and use the same piece of yarn for the next 70?. . .. which means I'll have a piece of yarn kinda "tying" the 70 together? I'm just so lost, and did the 1st round then started getting worried, as it looked kinda funky, and just undid it all.
Please please please someone respond. .. I'm totally lost here and *so* dying to continue
