Once you’ve completed the main shoulder shaping, it’s time to work the front and back separately down to the underarm.

Left Front

Knit to first marker.

With RS facing, work across the Left Front stitches to the marker.

Turn work so wrong side is facing.

Remove the marker and turn work so the wrong side (purl row) is facing.

Slip the left front stitches onto a stitch holder or waste yarn.

Slip the Left Front stitches purl wise, working from right to left, onto a stitch holder or waste yarn.

Tie the ends of the waste yarn together.

If using waste yarn, tie the ends together.

Knit across the narrow shoulder strip to the next marker.

Turn so the right side is facing again, and work across the narrow shoulder strip to the next marker.

Slip shoulder stitches to another holder or waste yarn.

Turn work so the wrong side is facing and slip shoulder stitches onto a separate stitch holder or waste yarn.

Work to the end of the row. You’ll now be working back and forth on the Back stitches only. Sizes 1-7 are worked straight down to the armhole (both A-C and D+ sizes), while sizes 8-12 have a few more increases worked at the bottom of the armhole.

Next time: Casting on the middle of the row and joining to work in the round.
