|This is front facing - I'm about halfway done with one sleeve|
|See the bottom row there? The bottom of the triangle? That's where you need to pick up stitches!|
It's a little fiddly and difficult to see here, but just insert the tip of a new dpn into a stitch and loop your new yarn over the needle & pull through. Make sure you leave a tail! At least 6 inches!!
Wa-la! You just picked up a stitch!
Place a marker after #5 of the stitches you are picking up! This is your marker that ends (or begins) your rounds!
Finish picking up your stitches and then knit a row - all the way around to your marker. Now just adjust your stitches on your dpns to evenly space them out! It's a lot easier to have even amounts on each needle! Now.... just follow your directions and knit your sleeves!
I always try and start picking up stitches as close as to the point where the underarm meets the row where I decreased; it seems to help make my holes smaller. There will be some little holes there and you just take your tail yarn & as you are threading it around to sew it in- just neatly sew up those holes! That's why I leave a tail!
