I think I finally get my shrug instructions with a little rearrangement of commas and adding of full stops it makes sense; (I know how to CO using the backward loop method]
- Joining round (RS) work across 39 stitches on needles in established rib.
- Using the backward loop method, CO 9 stitches.
- With RS of other sleeve facing, work across 39 stitches from holder in established rib.
- CO 9 stitches as before [backwards loop method] - 96 stitches in total.
