struggling with neckband on childs V neck jumper
I'm struggling with the neckband on a childs (boy) V neck slipover jumper. I have never done this before.
It says Join right shoulder seam. With rs facing, using 4mm needles and M, pick up and knit 36 sts along left side of neck, 1 st from centre front (mark this st. with a coloured thread), 36 sts. along right side of neck and 24 sts. from back of neck 97 sts,
(How can you pick all these sts. up on one needle unless it is a circular needle ?) it then says 1st row, + Purl2,k2 rep from + to marked st, purl marked st.+ k2, p2, rep from + to end.
1st row sets 2x2 rib.
The pattern is 2229 easy knit sweater ans slipover by sirdar.
