Help with pattern
I am doing this:

under divide for body

K37 sts for right front, bind off next 3 sts, K60 sts for sleeve and slip sts to stitch holder

If I k the 60 sts and slip them onto a holder won't my working yarn then be on the sts holder? I don't understand. Usually when I make a sweater as this you knit up to the stitches to be slipped and slip them onto a holder, you don't knit them first....

Any help will be appreciated.

that link isn't working I don't think...

this is what the pattern says:

Divide for body:
Nest row (rs) K 37 sts for right front. bind off enxt 3 sts, K60 sts for sleeve and slip sts to stitch holder, boind off next 3 sts, k74 for back, bind off next 3 sts, k60 sts for sleeve and slip sts to stich holder bind off next 3 sts , k37 sts for left front

I actually had that direction on the baby hoodie I just finished. They had me slip sts onto a holder after knitting them, too. What I did was knit an extra st (in your example would be 61), then put that last st back onto the left needle. I then put the 60 sts onto the holder and returned the st with the yarn to the right needle.

Don't know if that was a wrong way to do it, but it worked fine for me and didn't mess anything up later.

That's a good way to do it, Wenda.

Ginny, even though the yarn is on the last stitch on your holder, the next st is still right there and you just continue knitting off your left needle. Just try it and you'll see why it's easier and different to just do as the pattern says rather than try and figure it out in your head.
