Im working on my first sweater and Im slightly confused by the pattern. Im making the 2/3XL size. My problem starts with the Divide for sleeve opening: 1st row and 2nd row
In row 1 it said to chain 6. In row 2, Im reading it as you basically follow the same pattern you were doing before, so in my case it would be a sets of 11dc, separated by a ch 1 sp. if you only chained 6 in the previous row, I dont see how that works. Also, I dont understand how that would fit all sizes of the pattern.
Here is the pattern. My trouble starts at the top of page 3. I would appreciate any help!

One thing I noticed in the pattern is that in row one you are still doing your previous pattern, so you've got way more than six chains to work with for row 2. It looks like for row one you should do 61 stitches of your pattern, ch6, skip next 48 stitches, do 97 stitches of your pattern, ch6, skip next 48 stitches, and do 61 stitches of your pattern.
What this row does is pinch off the sleeves, leaving you with only the "live" stitches needed to make up the circumference for the torso part of the sweater.

So now in row 2 you should be able to Ch4, then just do the *11dc, Ch1, miss 1 chain space* all the way across.

Does that help at all?

I tried it more times than I could count and couldn't get the chain 1 spaces to stay lined up after the sleeve divide. I ended up frogging the whole thing and I'm trying a different pattern.
