Okay I'm on the other sleeve now this the part I am on
Right Front
With WS facing, join yarn to rem 36(41:47:52:58) sts
on spare needle, p to end. Work 4(4:6:4:6) rows straight, ending at side edge.
Is WS the end of the sleeve or the other side towards the middle? And how do I join the yarn to the remaining 36 sts?

Great! You're on the Right Front. These are the sts you knit across and placed on a holder. Now you're ready to work the WS row and purl. You'll be starting at the middle, not the sleeve side. Join the yarn by starting to knit with the new strand. You can hold it with the same hand that's holding the left needle if you'd like. Leave about a 6" tail to weave in later. The first couple of sts on the row will be a little loose but you can snug them up later.

I am still very confused. The yarn is still connected to the stiches I was told to place on a holder. Am I suppose to cut it to get a new piece for the WS sts? And I'm still not sure how to join the yarn.

Ok, if you still have a ball of yarn attached to the right front sts, you can use that to purl back along those sts and follow the pattern for the right front. (The pattern intended that yarn to be used to bind off the center sts and work the left front but no matter.) This is a diagram of where you are in the pattern. You should be set to work the right front now by purling the sts that were on the holder (My apologies to Debbie Bliss for the drawing.)

Fabulus! You're making great progres.
Knit the 4sts at the right front and start picking up sts along the bottom edge of the right front headed toward the front edge and then up that right front edge to the neck, around the neck, down the left front to the other 4 held sts.
Here's a video for picking up sts just in case you need it.

What did I do wrong? My sweater does not look right at all! If I could figure out how to post a picture I would show you but one side looks totally different then the other.

HELP!
Hi! I`m doing the same shrug. I`ve worked really hard on it but nothing done. Please help! If you can tell where I did something wrong and if I fix it. I`ve worked many hours and I don`t want to lose them. This is my first knitting project, I really wanted to do something, but it`s nothing gone... My question, once again, is can I fix it from this position?
Thank you!
The first picture is from the RS, and the second one is from the RS.

So, I looked from here http://dianne-jones.blogspot.com/201...aby-shrug.html , and I`ve started from this part "BACK, FRONT and
SLEEVES
(worked in one piece)
With 5mm needles cast on 8 sts.
P 1 row.". I missed this "TENSION
18 sts and 24 rows to 10cm square over st-st using 5mm needles.", because I coudn`t understand it...
