I've already asked once about this silly pattern, which I keep putting down because I am not loving it. But, am determined to finish now and I have another question.
Here is the pattern: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babyswepetal.htm
In the Dividing for Armholes section, this is where my problem lies.
BO four, yada yada, got it. But then it says "Purl back, placing sleeve sts from holder on needle and placing markers at beginning and end of each sleeve."
1.) The sleeves are 19 stitches... they aren't really easily placed in a space of 4 BO'd stitches.
2.) Does place mean that I should purl them from the holders, or just slip them from the holders.
2a.) If it means slip, do I just carry the yarn underneath and continue purling across the row afterward? Won't that be uncomfortable while wearing the sweater later?
2b.) If it means purling, then the drastic difference of 4/23 stitches comes into play... wouldn't that make a funny shaped armhole?
Can someone make sense of this for me?
