On page 78, the photo shows a crossover at the underarm. This crossover is achieved by working into the purl bumps behind the stitches on the needle. The instructions for placing the right-side purl bumps onto the holder are at the bottom of the first column on page 86, and the instructions for placing the left-side purl bumps onto the holder are at the top of the center column of the same page. Nothing needs to be done to these 6 (7, 7, 12, 15, 19) stitches until the back is worked (top of 3rd column): With the WS facing, place the left-side stitches, the back stitches and the right-side stitches onto needle.
