My question is, when I slip the 42 to hold, are they left on the same needle, or on a holder? If left on the needle how do I cast on 6, do I had another yarn since the yarn I am using is at the end of the K35.
A link to the pattern always helps when asking questions.
You're making a top down sweater correct?
I always use scrap yarn in a smaller gauge for the holder. It makes it easier to work the body that way IMO. The CO 6 will not be on the sleeves stitches that are on the holder. They will be the under arm when you go to pick up the sleeve stitches to knit them.
Does that help?
