    The pattern has been updated to reflect this.

    Its the row where you place the stitch markers before the eyelet row in the body of the garment, it should read.

  • Comment from Knitter via Ravelry…
    Whelp, I’m glad I asked because I would not have figured this out had I winged it!

    I’ve never done this kind of sleeve/underarm. Your instructions make perfect sense and I might have figured it out if I had remembered or seen the cast off stitches on both ends of the sleeve! The fuzzy yarn I used hid the cast off and I would have totally missed it.

    Thanks much!
