Knit pattern help
I am knitting my first sweater and I am having some trouble understanding the pattern. Can an experienced knitter please help me?
This is the part I am currently stuck on.
Shape sleeves
Cast on 5(6:7:8:9) sts at beg of next 8 rows. 88(100:112:124:136) sts. Work a further 18(22:24:26:28) rows. Divide for fronts
They told me to transfer to a circular needle so I did. Am I suppose to knit it together now? And what does divide for fronts mean?
Here is the whole pattern for reference.

Hello, and welcome. Before answering your question could I ask you to edit down the patern for copyright reasons?

It you take out everything from MATERIALS, to ABBREVIATIONS inclusive and FRONT EDGING to the end that will be a start.

No, you dont need to knit it together. The pattern still refering to rows and not rounds is the clue to this.

Divide for fronts isn't an instruction but a 'Chapter heading', so follow the instructions that start
Next row K36(41:47:52:58) sts, leave these sts on a spare needle,.....and you will be dividing for fronts.
