um, silly marker question...

i'm working on the sleeves and was reading ahead in the pattern to the decrease round under "yoke.". this seems to call for the existence of four markers? i only count three as having been placed. this may seem obvious, but am i to assume i should have four markers, one at the beginning and end of each sleeve, or am i missing something?

i know this seems small, but i'm hoping to avoid any more frogging and, so, am paranoid!

I think Illana had a similar issue. She may have included something on her blog. Check it out.

Yes - you need four markers. At that point of making the sweater, I just assumed that four markers were needed and it wasn't until afterwards that I read the directions closely that it seemed... ambiguous. I also ended up switching to a 16" needle towards the end of the neckline - I didn't want to make it too loose.

you may be missing the note to place a marker of a different color at the beginning of the round.

Hey there! Yep, I had the same problem too, unfortunately. I called Joelle at Purl and she told me that there should be 4 stitch markers there. 2 on either side in the front, and 2 on either side in the back. Let me know if you have some more questions about it!
