Casting on in middle of project
I am knitting a baby sweater. The pattern tells me to slip arm stitches onto stitch holder, then CO one 1 tightly. Next knit the back of sweater stitches, slip arm stitches onto stitch holder. Then CO stitch tightly, placing a stitch marker to mark new BOR either after the CO stitch (if only one) or between two of the cast on stitches. These stitches will be the underarm. Then I am to start to knit all stitches for the body. Does this include the new CO stitches. Is this going to make sense when I just do it and start knitting. The body stitch count says I should have 88 stitches. This information is after the CO directions. But if I make the CO stitches I will have 90 stitches. Should I still make them and decrease somewhere else? Do these stitches hang differently for the underarm? Does this even make sense?
