Help, quickie
I don't understand this on the sweater's pattern that I'm in the process of making:

"Next row (RS) Work 41 sts, join 2nd ball of tarn and work to end"

I'm not out of yarn....I'm probably not understand this direction properly. :rollseyes:

You're probably going to be putting the center stitches on a holder for the back of the neck and you'll need the second strand to work the two shoulders separately. Just drop the first strand, and knit with the second. It will all make sense soon enough.

Just knit with the yarn you've been using for 41 stitches. Drop that strand, and start knitting with a new ball for the rest of the row.

Check the next line in the directions. I bet they say something to the effect that you're to purl back 41, put X amount of stitches on a holder, and then, with the other strand you left behind, you'll purl to the end of that side.

Now you have your two shoulders on the needles, each with their own strand of yarn, since they're no longer connected.

does this piece split into 2? b/c by using 2 balls of yarn you are creating a slit. . do you have a pic of the sweater or at least the part the directions are referring to? (aka, the front, back etc??) it would help.

OK, so this looks like it's the front since they refer to making it the same length as the back.

It does look like there's either a slit in the front, unless the number of stitches doesn't work out. Do the two sides have an equal number of stitches? Does the front have a slit that buttons at the top or something?

the front has a slit for the zipper, I think.

So I NECESSARILY need another yarn of the same color (I have one that is tangled:-\)?
