I really need your help. I am knitting a baby onesie... On straight needles... I have completed both the back and front of the onesies, but I don't understand how to shape the neck/shoulder.
Prior to completing both the front and back of the onesie I was instructed to decrease on either end of the the right side row, every other row until there were 20 stitches remaining.
So when I had only 20 stitches remaining, the instructed stated to bind off the 20 stitches, which I have done for both the back and front of the onesie, but now in proceeding to the neck shaping, it is asking me to "Mark 18 center stitches, then join a second ball of yarn and bind off center 18 stitiches and continue to work both sides in this fashion. Continue to decrease 1 stitch at the end and then fasten off".
I don't get this, can anyone help. I also got this pattern from the following magazine: Knitting Today Magazine from March 2011.
Any help you can provide is appreciated.
