    Hello! I’ve made this sweater 3 times ! and am now not sure about the part before placing stitches on yarn. Need a reminder. Do I understand that “you will now work even” means that all stitches are knit except for the garter panel which will continue? I’ve done 3 rows this way but forgot to check stitches when I started this section. Thanks for your help. Love the pattern.

      Hi Lita – Work even means you are working without increases, but you are keeping the stockinette and garter sections in tact.

    Thank you. I’ve been browsing your website while I waited to start the next section, and I love it! You have such a diverse collection of how-to posts. Can’t wait to learn more!

    Hi. Working on the Mountain Mist sweater, starting the yoke separation rounds. I’ve removed the CB marker k39 stitches and placed the BOR marker. The next step is to place 43 stitches on hold, which I can do. But the next direction says to cast on 13 stitches. Should I cast on 13 stitches on a new needle like I did to start the sweater? Or cast 13 more stitches onto the working needle?

      Hi Julianna – you want to cast those sts onto the working needle.

    Please tell me what the instruction means “turn cast on one stitch turn”. I am knitting antler mittens and have put the thumb stitches on hold.

      Hi Doris – you can turn your work and use a knitted cast on to add one stitch, or you can skip the turn and just cast on 1 stitch using the backwards loop cast on.

    I am making a sweater (first time) and the instructions say to put the last 33 stitches for the back on a stitch holder (or waste yarn). How do I do that if I need the rest of the yarn to start the front? Can I bind off and pick up those stitches when continuing with the pattern or do I have to start a whole new skein?

      Hi Carla – kind of depends on the sweater, but you can always cut your yarn.

    Best explanation I have seen but could you not just put the stitches on a stitch holder?

      Sometimes, but I prefer waste yarn because it is flexible
