Separate front and back for neck for baby sweater pullover
Hi. I'm a very new knitter and am currently trying to knit a crosscut pullover for my grandson. It's a pattern that is knit in one piece from side to side.
I have finished one sleeve up to the neckline. I binded off 11 stitches for the neckline and now I'm working on the back of the sweater. I have put the front stitches that were on the other side of the neckline on a holder.
My question is: Once I finish knitting the back of the sweater and put those stitches on a holder. I'm supposed to put the front stitches back on the needle.
However, won't the ball of yarn be attached to the back stitches on the holder now?
How will I knit the front of the sweater if there's no yarn attached to it?
Hope you understand my problem and can offer some help.
It's pretty frustrating.
