So far so good, until now! shaping shoulders...
I have 16 stitches on my needle which is the correct amount, this pattern reads:-
Cast off 5 stitches at beg of next row and following alt row. work 1 row, cast off rem 6 stitches.
I have done this so all of my 16 stitches are casted off
Now the problem starts! ...
Slip next 2 stitches onto a stitch holder (Where are these as I have just cast all 16 stitches off ?!)
With right side facing, join yarn to rem stitches (which stitches?) and knit to end. Continue on these 42 stitches.
Dec 1 stitch at neck edge in 2nd row, then in every foll 4th row 3 times ... 38 stitches.
i do not understand where all of these stitches are, surely it would tell me if i have to re pick up stitches??
Any help much appriciated, i would love to finish my first ever v neck jumper!!
