Slip Band into place means what

by AJ
(Canada)

I knitted a cardigan sweater and left the 5 stitches of the band on a stitch holder and went ahead and knitted the band to fit.

The patterns say to "Slip band into place" - how does one do this? I'm sure it's so easy I'm missing it but I've looked through tons of websites and can find no mention of this anywhere.

Thanks.

YOUR ANSWER


It depends. Are the stitches of your bands used to knit the neck band?

If so, then they probably mean that you slip the five stitches from one band onto your working needle before you pick up the stitches around the neck. Then you slip the five stitch from the other band on the needle at the other end.

If not, they could just be talking about placing the band when you are sewing it onto the front of your cardigan.
