Knitting/Pattern no 1426. Snuggly Tiny Tots Dk
I have reached the sleeves. Pattern is saying.
Cast on 6 stitches, working in g-st throughout until work measures 6cm ending with rs row, leave these 6 stitches on a stitch holder.
Using 3 1/4 mm needles cast on 17 sits with rs facing knit across 6 stitches and cast on 8 stitches.
I have got as far as putting the 6 stitches onto holder, but don't know how to continue. Do I cut wool and start again and how do I mix in left over thread to stop unraveling.
It sounds to me like they want you to use another ball of yarn and cast on 17 stitches with 3 1/4 mm needles. with the stitches on the stitch holder and with right side facing you, knit these 6 stitches from the stitch holder and at the end of the row cast on 8 more stitches.
If you do that there will be a loose yarn tail from the stitches that were on the holder but you can weave it in later.
