I checked the website before I posted here and there was not an errata on the magazine website, so.... what I am finding is that if I do the decreases as they are written on the purl side then they will be on the neckline Which I dont think is right. Here are the directions for the right front:
Work in SS until right front measures same as back to the decrease row.
Next row(dec row) P1, P2TOG, (P2, P2TOG)6 TIMES, P2
NEXT ROW: P4, MB, (P6,MB)2 TIMES, P3
NEXT ROW: K3, P1(K6,P1)2 TIMES, K4
ROW1: P4, K1(P6,K1)2 TIMES,P3
ROW2: K3, P1 (K6,P1)2 TIMES, K4
REPEAT ROWS 1&2 UNTIL RIGHT FRONT MEASURES SAME AS BACK TO ARMHOLES
SHAPE ARMHOLES: PATT TO LAST 2STS, PATT2TOG(ARMHOLE EDGE)
NEXT ROW: PATT2TOG, PATT TO END
WORK 2 ROWS DECREASING 1 STS AT ARMHOLE EDGE EVERY ROW
WORK ON THESE 18STS UNTIL ARMHOLE MEASURES 2 1/2 INCHES FINISH AFTER A WS ROW.
