confused. :s
Hi there,

I am new to this site & so glad I've found it! I'm confused with an easy pattern for a baby sweater. http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0...s%2FL0071.html

I'm at the "left front yoke" it says to cast on 18 stitches. Cast it on to what???

Please help. I'm so confused.

Just cast on to your needle with a new yarn end - this begins a new piece. Reading further - after you knit 3 rows with those stitches you'll be knitting the back and right yoke stitches onto the same needle to join them.

What part confuses you? The first part of the sweater is on holders at this point, take a new yarn end and cast on the sts, then you work across the back stitches and the sts on the other side of the yoke.

The diagram with the sweater pattern is actually quite helpful. Follow that to keep yourself oriented. I think the pattern is missing a line, added in italics below. After you cut the yarn, you'll have the back yoke on a holder and the right front yoke bound off. Now start the left front yoke with no sts on the needle by casting on 18sts. It's like starting a totally new piece. You'll work these 18sts for 3 rows, put the back yoke on the needles and then work the back yoke & front yoke sts separately until the join row.

Next Row: K18 (for right front yoke), slip 18 sts to a holder (for back yoke); leave yarn attached to back yoke for later use.
Working over 18 right front yoke sts only, k 3 rows. Bind off the 18sts and cut yarn leaving ~6 inches to weave in later.
LEFT FRONT YOKE
Cast on 18 sts (for left front yoke).
K 3 rows.

salmonmac, thank you. Perhaps that is all that is missing. That makes sense along with what suzeeq said. I've emailed lion brand as well.

I'm not sure about the binding off though as it's suppose to all be worked in one piece?
