Hi all,


I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around the last portion of the sleeve directions...


I've almost finished my first sleeve, and am to the "Next Round" directions, where it says to "K to 4 sts before marker, and BO 8 sts".  Now, the way mine is, the marker is at the "beginning" of each round, correct?  So to complete this last direction, I would:  Knit all the way around to the last 4 stitches in the round, and by binding off 8 stitches, I'm actually binding off 4 stitches in the NEXT round???


Does this make sense?  I just want to make sure I have it right before I go on to the next sleeve...


Thanks, Debra

That is exactly what you do. 


The beginning/end of round marker is the middle of the underarm seam.  You will pick up where you left off as you join the sleeve to the body of the cardigan,

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.....good to know I'm on the right track!  (this is my first cardigan/first sleeves, so I'm kind of muddling my way through...)


Thanks again!

Yes, it doesn't hurt that you are 4 stitches into the next round, it won't cause any problems.  Just put your remaining stitches onto a scrap yarn and set it aside until you have the 2nd sleeve finished, do the same with it, and work on your body!  janet
