Help with sleeves!
I'm making this sweater, and I'm having some problems with it. I had posted in the pattern section for some reason, but I figured its better to ask questions here.

i've made up to the sleeves, but I'm having some problems moving forward. Here is the section I'm not sure about:

Sew shoulder seams. Place markers 4 (4, 4, 5) in. down from shoulder on Front and Back. From RS, pick up and k 26 (26, 30, 32) sts between markers. Work in garter st (k every row) for 2 in.
Dec Row: K2tog, k to last 2 sts, k2tog 24 (24, 28, 30) sts. Continue in garter st, rep Dec Row every 6 rows 2 (2, 4, 5) times more 20 sts. Work even until piece measures 6 (7, 8, 9) in. Bind off.
Sew side and Sleeve seams.

I seamed the shoulders and placed the markers 4 1/2in down but now I'm stuck. Am I supposed to pick up 15 st on each side from the front and back then knit the sleeves and seam it in 2 places (on top and under the arm)?

Thanks for the help!

Pick up the stitches from one marker to another; this will be all the way around the top of the shoulder and you'll have just one seam that goes on the bottom of the sleeve.
