MORE help needed! Sighh ...
"Shoulder shaping (using short rows)
Row 1 (WS): yif, sl2, purl to 5 sts from end, move last 5 sts to holder, turn work.
Row 2 (RS): yib, sl1, k10, *{pattern}; repeat *to 10 sts from end, k5, move last 5 sts to holder, turn work.
Row 3: yif, sl1, purl to last 5 sts, move 5 sts to holder, turn."
and so on, to row 26: in other words, I'm being instructed to put sts on holder virtually every row.
Whilst I can easily understand why this is so, what I can't grasp is whether this means I need 26 holders sprouting from my work, or if I'm swapping sts.
At times like this my brain simply shuts down: I can't begin to THINK!
