Knitting front side of shirt adding sleeves

by Jennifer
(New Mexico)

Pattern is knitted in two pieces, front side and back side exactly alike and stitched together. I am at the point where I start adding sleeve and am confused by the instructions. At this point I have been knitting the front side on size 8 needles. For the sleeves they want us to use size 10 needles. I am confused as to the “desperate into two equal parts“ are the sleeve parts only knitted on size 10 and the body is kept on the size 8 or what? Please help! See instructions below:

Row 19 - all knit, separate into 2 equal parts which will be worked on long straight needles- one side at a time.
Row 20 - cast on 20 st. at the beginning of the row ( one side of the sleeve ) , all purl
Row 21 - cast 20 st. at the beginning of the row ( second part of the sleeve ), all knit

Knitting front side of shirt adding sleeves

Hello Jennifer,

This is so odd! I've never heard of this before. I'm with you on this and very confused. Are you sure that the number 8 is not only for the ribbing (if you have any)? That's what usually happen when you have 2 sizes of needles. The smaller one is usually for ribbing and the bigger one is for the body. I'm not sure if this is the case.

I would like to see more of the pattern if I could. Is there a link to it online? Can you take a good photo of the instruction and email me at; ratchachambers@gmail.com?

Thanks,
Ratcha
