Does this pattern come with directions to knit it flat, not on circulars? I\'m not sure that I can manage all that at once.

Dear PatsyCarol, you will find here how to adapt a pattern into straight needles. Happy knitting!

Ik wil die heren trui maken maar ik kom er niet uit boven in staat 240 steken opzetten en er onder staat 116 dat snap ik niet welke moet ik nu hebben

Hoi Siny. Je begint met in de rondte breien (dus over zowel voor als achterpand: 240 st), Je kant af voor de armsgaten zoals beschreven en breit dan de panden apart verder. Je hebt dan 116 st voor elk pand.
