That's what I thought. So if you want to continue knitting in the round, you can do the sleeves and join them to the body and do raglan decs. You'll have 3 tubes - oOo - and where they touch is the underarm. Leave a few stitches there on holders on the body and sleeves then knit the front sts, knit the sts from one of the sleeves, knit the back sts, then the other sleeve all onto one needle. It helps to put on markers at the 4 points between the sections. The next round, do 2 decs at each marker, one before and one after. Then do a plain round and decreases the next and every other round until you have the number of sts you want for the neck.
