I'm attempting to knit a cardigan from Son of Stitch 'N Bitch. I finished the bottom edge and the next instruction says "K to last 8 stitches and place those onto wy." I'm not really sure what this means. I'm thinking I'm dropping the 8 stitches cuz I will need them to make the button hole/button edges. Do I just put them onto some waste yarn? It doesn't seem like they will be able to be reattached to the rest of the garment. Thanks for any help.
