Hi
This is my first ever project after squares, scarves and mobile phone covers.

OK so the pattern is Sirdar Peru 8820. A tank top.

I have complete the back. I have 39 stitches on my needles. It says cast of 39 stitches. Which i can do. Then it says

" place markers markers to indicate back of neck at each side of centre" [23] sts.

I know how to place markers with some coloured thread but what is the 23 all about and what is each side of centre. I know it probably makes sense to the rest of the world but not me.

PLEASE HELP..... :aww:

Of your 39 sts, mark off the 23 that are in the middle of them. That would be 8 sts in from the edges. You'll need that later to show you where to either sew the shoulders seams or for picking up sts for a neckband. Or something. You can read ahead to the finishing instructions to see what you'll do with them if you want.

THANK YOU :hug:

WOW i think that makes sense. Cast off put a marker on the 8th st and then put a marker on the 8th st from the end.

Why did it not just say that.
