So, I'm doing my first sweater. It's this
pattern. I'm at the final step and ready to attach the sleeves. When I knit them, I put the markers 6 rows from the end as directed. Now I'm supposed to attach them at those markers. I just don't get that. Why should I do that? What's the point of wasting those 6 rows? How do I attach that without having a big bunch up inside the sweater? Maybe I'm missing something....It's a gift that I'd really like to give before she outgrows it...although I may not give it as it's my first and I'm still not too confident in it!
