Hello to all you wonderfully helpful folks.
"Patt 21 sts, turn, and work on these sts only for first side of neck. Keeping continuity of pattern, dec one st at neck edge on next 6 rows."
Row 1: knit 21 stitches
Row 2: decrease 1 stitch and continue in pattern
Row 3: knit in pattern
Row 4: decrease 1 stitch and continue in pattern
Row 5: knit in pattern
Row 6: decrease 1 stitch and continue in pattern
I'm 99% certain that is wrong but it seems to work well with the pattern. Am I supposed to decrease at the end and the beginning of each row instead??? It's supposed to end up with 15 stitches so obviously something has to be done differently.
