In reading the rest of the pattern, I have more questions. I will try to break this down so it’s easier to follow (for me). This is my first sweater, so I apologize for the ignorance and thank you all for any help you can give me.
I’m at the shape raglan part, and the pattern reads as follows:
Row 1: *k to within 2 sts of next marker, k2tog tbl, sl marker, k2tog; rep from * accross all markers, k to end
Row 2: purl.
Repeat last 2 rows 14 times in all [B]DOES THIS MEAN 28 ROWS TOTAL?[/B]
At the same time, when armhole measures 2 1/2", shape neck as foll: Keeping to raglan shaping as est, after working first 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows place them on holders, then dec 1 st at beg and end of every other row (neck edges) 2 times [B]DOES THIS MEAN TO PLACE 4 ON HOLDERS THEN DEC 1 OR TO PUT THE 4 ON HOLDERS ON BOTH ROWS AND THEN DO 4 MORE ROWS OF DECREASES[/B]. On last WS row, p2tog before and after each marker. Sl remaining sts on holder.
[B]ALSO, IS THIS ENTIRE LAST PARAGRAPH INCLUDED IN THE 24 ROWS STATED IN INSTRUCTION SENTENCE BEFORE IT?[/B]
