Okay I have knit the razor cami to about 16". I'm at the part where you divide the armpit, and I am totally confused. I tried to do it, but then it seemed like I was knitting backwards and it was messed up. Could someone who has knit this just explain this part to me in more detail? Or even with pictures??  Thanks!

it's been a while since I made mine, but basically, all you're doing is putting the stitches for the back of the top on a holder (or scrap yarn or whatever), and continuing to work the front section up higher.  I was also confused about what the divide section would look like -- basically the front section is a few inches higher than the back section -- somehow it works out ok.  see if you can see what I mean in the photo of mine below. (you can sort of see that the ribbing at the top of the back portion just ends under my armpit.)

I haven't knit it but I would say that once you seperate off the back stitches you are no longer knitting in the round. Because of that change when it says continue in pattern you would change round (row) 2 to purl.

what I am confused about is continuing the front. Because there will be a wrong side now, how do I knit that? I got confused when in came to psso. I switched the knits to purls for the wrong side. Then when I did the psso (which was wrong) the slipped stitch was going in the opposite direction.

on the "wrong side" you will be doing what she calls [round 2] which is only knit the whole way - so you should be changing that [round - which is really a row] to all purls.

Round 1 - which is the pattern row does not get changed so the psso should only be happening on the right side.


So you are knitting round 1 then round 2 -
You get to 16 inches.
On your next round 1 - knit 78 stitches in pattern
         Put the remaining 78 stitches on a stitch holder or scrap yarn to hold for later.
Turn the work (you are now on the wrong side)
Purl those same 78 stitches
Turn the work (now on the right side)
Knit those same 78 stitches in pattern
Repeat for 3.5 inches
BO

Hope this helps.
