Can't get it, GG - sorry. My problem is that I'm using a circular needle and I just don't know what's meant by left or right.
And I can't see any logic in the instructions.
The yarn has been cut: the directions telling me to "use spare pieces of yarn" for the CO at either end of the needle indicate as much.
I simply cannot make sense of the instructions; and, with regret, I have to admit to not being able to act on your advice.
I think I'll go away and slit my wrists.
