Link to pattern

I'm very proud of myself - I've done the entire body of this cardigan - I'm quite a newbie to knitting and have only done blankets so far, k & P!

However I'm stuck with the sleeves and wondered if someone could point me in the right direction please?

Quote:
With the right side facing, locate the centre bottom of the sleeve opening. Pick up two stitches from the left of the opening and continue knitting the round, picking up two additional stitches onto needle 3[/b]
"right side facing"... does it mean the right side of the knitting (purls?), and does it mean facing to me or away from me?

i've never used DPNs before so this is really new.

How do I know which 2 DPN to use first?

"pick up 2 sts from the left opening"... pick them up from where? The previous needle? Or increase?

I have 2 needles either side of the bottom opening of the sleeve under the arm) and one laying across the top (in line with shoulder)

Many thanks in advance for help offered!
