So ive begun to divide the work, but i have stopped because what do do with the yarn?
Ive divide the left front and im supposed to work 54 stitched then divide for the sleeve, but the yarn/thread is at the left front divide.
So I pick up a new ball of yarn? to divide the rest of the work?
Just do exactly what it says in the pattern. It says nothing about cutting yarn, you have to work across all the stitches, placing the various parts on holders. Knit across all the stitches with the same yarn to the 2nd sleeve, put the other front on a holder and keep the yarn to work on the sleeve.
There won't be any yarn between the sections. You knit across the front, put the sts on a holder and then just knit the next stitches which are the sleeve and put it on a holder. The next stitch is on the back and when you knit those stitches and put them on a holder, it's right next to the sleeve that you will knit. When you're finished with the sleeve, and BO, then you would probably cut the yarn unless it says to seam up the sleeve with it and work the other front. Or you take the end of yarn and knit another section with that.
You've never said the actual name of this pattern - it may be one we can look up and read further ahead.
Oh okay, what's next after you BO the first sleeve? Anyway, there's no gap with the yarn, after you knit the sts and put them on the holder, it's like the yarn is still on the right needle, so you just knit the next stitch.
