I'm working on a Crewneck-Pullover (vintage pattern) knit on two needles. I have completed the Back. Now i am up to finishing the Front. So far they seem to match up pretty nicely and evenly. I have divided the Front piece for left shoulder, center and right shoulder. I have a question now about the following pattern instruction and am hoping that someone here might help me through this challenging step as I proceed in finishing up the left shoulder. Many thanks! Here it is:
"work even on remaining 25 sts and when armhole is same length as back (this part of the knitting has been done), [COLOR="Red"]shape shoulder same as for right side of back (*this is where I am stuck right now)[/COLOR].
so, turning back to the instructions for shoulder on the back:
Shoulder instructions for back:
"Bind off 6 sts at beg. of next 6 rows.
7 sts at beg. of next 2 rows
work ribbing for 8 rows"
*When I bound off 6 sts every row for the back it was the right edge and left edge, going back and forth - knit and purl - in stockinnette. I am thinking that I should now only bind off every OTHER row so that the decreases match up to the back edge, but keep the inside of the front left a straight up edge with no decreases? or is that incorrect? Should I decrease on each side of this small front shoulder section, just as the pattern says for the back? I did the first row of this Front left side decrease (-6 sts) and am ready to go back the other way on the next row, so I am not sure if i should decrease another 6 or wait until the next row, keeping the decrease on the outer edge.
It is so hard to describe in words, and I am hoping that someone could clarify this for me. I truly appreciate the help. Thank you!!!
