Sweater pocket help!!!
Sigh. Tried to figure this out on my own but no luck. I'm knitting the "Lace Collared Cardigan" by Patons and am up to the pockets. The instructions say:

Pat 17 st across. Slip next 25 st onto st holder. Pat across 25 sts from pocket st holder. Pat to end of row. Cont in pat until work from beg measures blah blah.

Ok, I did the 17 st in pattern, slipped the 25 st but am kind of clueless about how to knit across from the st holder. Do I use the point from the stitch holder to knit with, but keep the sts on the holder? Would that be kind of like knitting through the back loop but leaving the st on the holder? I don't want to attempt anything myself and end up having to frog it.

There are instructions to make pocket linings and keep them on a st holder until later on and "sew in pocket lining in position on WS".
