I am working on this pattern and I am at the point where I divide for sleeves. The pattern reads thus:

K to first increase marker, remove it (remove all markers now as you come to them), K1. Now, using a blunt darning needle and scrap yarn, slip all the sts between here and the next marker on to the length of yarn to hold for the left sleeve. Cast onto the right tip of the needle 10 sts and join to the back sts. K across the back sts to the next marker K1, slip all the sts between here and the next marker k1, slip all the sts between here and the next marker onto a length of yarn to hold for the right sleeve. Cast on 10 sts as before. K to the end of the row.

Now, I am probably reading this incorrectly, but as I read it, it says cast on to the back stitches on the left side. But when you come to the right sleeve is it telling me to add the stitches to the front? Thank you all in advance for reading this and attempting to help.

First, there is a correction for this pattern here: http://knittingpureandsimple.com/2011/08/pattern-201/ but it doesn’t address the question you have right now. This is a top-down cardigan. The 10 stitches you’re casting on twice are at the underarms. On this row, you’re starting at the front edge, working across that front, then slipping the sleeve stitches onto scrap yarn, casting on at the underarm, continuing across the back, slipping other sleeve stitches onto scrap yarn, casting on again, and continuing across the front to the other front edge.

Edited to add: maybe this video will help: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=m6eIQtqTcf0

That is correct. Those cast on stitches are the underarm portion of the body. When the body is finished, you will cast on a like number of stitches for each sleeve. It may seem strange, but that is how to down , raglan sweaters are typically worked.

You are adding on 10 stitches between fronts and backs or think of it as 10 stitches under each sleeve. It will be continuous one piece knitting for the body of the sweater from here down. Good luck!

Thank you all for your quick response. It is a holiday in the US and I thought I was going to wait forever for a response and lose the whole day. Thank you all.

Yes, Targa416, I have the first correction which tells you to knit in garter stitch after you divide for the sleeves, when in fact it should be stockinette stitch. Thank you again.

Those 10 stitches effectively replace the stitches you have placed on the holder yarn pieces -- keeping the circumference around the sweater the same.

I've used several Pure and Simple patterns and they are excellent.
