For my first "garment" I'm making the "Martina" shell from the free patterns on the Berroco site. I've just finished the back and the instructions tell me to "slip all sts onto holder for back neck." OK -- but what do I do with the remaining ball of yarn still attached? Do I put the whole thing aside? Do I cut the yarn and use it to start the front piece of the shell? I'm confused! Thanks!
Read further into your directions and see if that particular ball of yarn will be picked up for the neck trim or not. Sometimes it isn't and you can cut it off. Other times it is from there that you start your pick up and it will be handier if you do not cut it off.
Of course you can just start the front with a new ball anyway, it wouldn't hurt.
