I am knitting the body of a sweater from the bottom up in the round, and once I reach the armholes, the instructions say to put 8 stitches on each side of the sweater on spare yarn to be grafted later to the sleeves. The sleeves are knit (in the round) separately from the body and then grafted to the body. My question is, when I set the body aside to knit the sleeves, do I cut the yarn attached to the body? Actually this yarn is still attached to one of the live stitches that is set aside for grafting. Also, since I am going to knit two sleeves in the round, do I cut the yarn on one of the sleeves and leave the yarn tail on the other to use for joining the body and sleeves together? I only have two balls of yarn so I am going to have to cut somewhere.
If it helps, the sweater is Paper Dolls
