Hi everyone,
I would like to start this project and I have read all the instructions but I am confused by the sentence I have underlined in this paragraph.

Armhole and Shoulder Shaping
NR: Cast off next 18 (20, 22, 24, 26, 28) sts, pattern across next 54 (61, 68, 75, 82, 89) sts, cast off next 18 (20, 22, 24, 26, 28) sts, pattern across last 54 (61, 68, 75, 82, 89) sts.
NR: Cast on 36 (40, 44, 48, 52, 56) sts, pattern across next 54 (61, 68, 75, 82, 89) sts, cast on 36 (40, 44, 48, 52, 56) sts, pattern across last 54 (61, 68, 75, 82, 89) sts - 180 (202, 224, 246, 268, 290) sts now on needle.
Cont even in pattern until shoulder from cast on measures 4".
Next 2 rounds: Knit.

I am a novice knitter trying to move up to larger projects!

TIA for any help offered!

Hi Dyanne
The instructions are telling you to cast off xxx stitches and then on the next row to cast on xxxxx stitches to make a hole for your arm to go through. Once you have cast on xxxxx stitches for the top part of this hole, you are to knit 4 more inches and then start the shaping for the neck (the hole for your head to go through). Have a good look at the schematic, take a gulp of faith that it will all work out, and knit the 4 inches. I think you'll be fine, but if not post again. Knits in the round are always a little bit 'different' from flat pieces.
