As long as you're close, it'll be fine.

Hi Salmonmac, it seems I need your help again. So I just knitting 54 and BO 42 as it recalls on the instructions. The thing is that to me it seems like I may have not done this correctly. I knitted the 54 from where I joined in the round then I BO 42 and on the instructions it says to work the front but it doesn't seem right because I am working what seems to be an underarm. Could you please take a look at the pattern and let me know if I am on the right track?

Thank you so kindly.

The 42 sts bound off probably do form the underarm/sleeve.

Sue, thank you for your response. So it does seem like I did this wrong because the front and the back are where I BO and the sides is where I have the 54 sts. Hope I am making sense.

Yeah, the 2 sets of 54 sts are the back and front, BO 42 to make the cap sleeves. Work on one set of 54 sts for the front, doing some more incs, then break the yarn and work on the 54 sts of the back.

Sue, not sure I understand. Are you saying I should increase the 42 sts to 54sts?

Remember that you knit 54sts, bind off 42, knit the next 54 and bind off 42. So you end up with the two bound off sections for armholes and two sections of 54sts on the needles. After the second bind off your yarn should be in the correct place to start on the front 54sts.

Thank you Salmonman for for your response. I decided to undo my knitting and start all over. I have a question for the next time. Do I start Knitting the 54 sts from where I begin the round? I did this and it didn't look right at all. I was not working the front nor the back I was working the sides. I hope I am making sense.

You shouldn't have to take it all out, just a row or 2. When you get to this BO round, k54 sts, BO 42, k54, BO 42 and your yarn will be in the right place to knit over the 54 sts and that should be the front.
