I am knitting the St. James
sweater and I have made it through slipping the stitches to scrap yarn for the sleeves. The next instruction really confuses me. Here are the instructions and I have put in bold what is confusing:
Divide Sleeves, Front, and Back
Next rnd: k68 [77, 85, 95, 104, 111, 120] sts (Front), remove m, sl 49 [52, 55, 65, 68, 72, 75] sts to scrap yarn for Right Sleeve, sl m, k68 [77, 85, 95, 104, 111, 120] sts (Back), remove m, sl 49 [52, 55, 65, 68, 72, 75] sts to scrap yarn for Left Sleeve. Sizes medium, 2x, and 3x only:*knit to m, CO – (-, 1, -, -, 2, 2); rep from * once
. All Sizes:(68 [77, 86, 95, 104, 113, 122] sts each for Front and Back). Work even in stockinette for 4 rnds without shaping.
I am doing the medium so it looks like I should CO 1 stitch, but I have no idea how to do that mid knitting. I long tail cast on to get started knitting, but I am clueless as to what they are wanting me to do here. Also, it says I am to knit to the marker and then repeat once before this cast on of one stitch. That will have me only knitting on the front part of the sweater. How do I repeat it since I am on circulars?
Here is a pic of where I am:
