Well, that is what I thought...takes you to 0 but the shape doesn't make sense. I wanted to ask b/c now I am on the left front and it says to shape shoulder as for back. I don't want to do it wrong twice.
I think the directions aren't clear enough about the split. The center stitches are bound off...I think I should have mentioned that. So you're working two shoulders at the same time. So what I did was decrease at the beginning of every row as it says, but maybe it meant at the beginning of each shoulder since it says "At each shoulder, dec 1 st ER 8 times"...so it could mean dec 1 er for EACH shoulder on the same row or just for EACH shoulder as you turn. Does that make any sense? I think maybe it was supposed to decrease twice on every row...one at each shoulder? Confusion continues but didn't prevent me from finishing as I understood it then because I thought it might be more clear when the left front began...but alas it says "shape shoulder as for Back" BAH!
