Need help with Garter Yoke Vest Pattern
I already posted this on Ravelry - but so far the one response didn't really help
Hi all,
Im stuck in a section of the pattern. The instructions state:
Knit in garter stitch on these 12 (11, 11) sts until 3 (3 1/2, 3 1/2) from bound off neck sts. Cast on 8 (9, 9) sts at front edge. Knit in garter stitch until front armhole measures the same as back armhole, and cast on 3 (6, 8) sts at armhole edge.
I got to the point where Im 3 from the bound off neck sts - but..
What do they mean by the rest, cast on 8 sts at front edge
I just cant picture what Im supposed to do hereso I have to admit - Im totally stumped! Ive only been knitting a year or so, and this is my first garment, so I went with what I thought was an easy vest.

You cast on sts at the beg of the row. With the sts in your left hand, do a knit or cable caston, then knit over both the new and the old stitches.

I get it! If I'm picturing it right, it's going to add a bit to the section to taper it where it will lay over the shoulder, rather than keep the shoulder just a straight strip.
I can't wait to get home from work now to try it.
Thanks so much Sue!
