well it says:
patt 16 sts, work 2 tog, turn and work this side first
keeping patt correct, dec 1 sts at neck edge on next 7 rows, cont straight untill front matches backto start of shoulder shaping
shape shoulder cast off 3 sts at beg of next and foll alt row
work 1 row
cast off rem 4 sts and centre 12 sts, rejoin yarn to rem sts work 2 tog pat to end reverse shapings to match other side.
My neck edge is quite messy as the pattern is based on a ribbing so i have dec knit wise on the knit rows and purl wise on the purl rows, is this correct or should i have done it all the same? Also joining the shoulder seams are quite difficult and don't look even, even though i cast off in knit all the way accross. I think knitting up a band is a good idea but i'm afraid the neck hole might then be too small...
What should i do?
