A few questions about this, do you cast off the 4 sts or leave them on the needle when turning? I understand a sl but what do they mean "as if to purl"?
this is the instructions for creating the armhole
Any help would be much appreciated.
If that's the ONLY thing you couldn't translate, then you're doing better than I am!
The "as if to purl" just means insert the needle like you were going to purl the stitch, but don't wrap the yarn around it, just slide it over to the other needle. This is how you'd slip most stitches unless the slipped stitch is part of a decrease (or the pattern says otherwise).
I think it's better if I defer to the more experienced on your other question...
