Hello, this is my first post and I have flubbed my pattern up and need some help to correct it. I am working on a sweater pattern and believe I messed up when I hit the neck shaping. The directions are as follows:
Neck shaping: 1st row: (RS). K2. Sl 1. K1. psso. K13. K2tog. Turn. Leave rem sts on a spare needle. 2nd row: P2tog. Purl to end of row. 3rd row: K2. Sl 1. K1. psso. Knit to last 2 sts. K2tog. 4th row: As 2nd row. Rep last 2 rows 2 times more. 7 sts.
Next row: (RS). Sl 1. K1. psso. Knit to last 2 sts. K2tog. Next row: Purl to last 2 sts. P2togtbl. 4 sts.
Next row: (RS). Sl 1. K1. psso. K2. Next row: P1. P2togtbl. 2 sts.
All sizes: Next row: Sl 1. K1. psso. Fasten off. With RS of work facing, slip next 12 sts onto st holder and proceed as follows: 1st row: Sl 1. K1. psso. Knit to last 4 sts. K2tog. K2. 2nd row: Purl to last 2 sts. P2togtbl. Rep last rows 3 times more. 7 sts.
Okay, so my problem is that I did the first part of the neck shaping up to All sizes: Next row. When I was getting ready to start that side of the neck I was first confused because I didn’t know if I was supposed to be working on the sts I had put on the stitch holder (extra needle) or the rest, but I was able to find someone who showed me I was supposed to have 19 sts for each side of the neck and 12 that would be the middle of the neckline. Once she brought that to my attention though I realized I made some sort of mistake and I need to rip out the one side of the neckline I had finished already because I didn’t use the right number of sts for the first side of the neckline. So anyway, my problem is, that thinking I was doing it all correctly I already finished and fastened off the first side and cut the yarn, so how do I go about ripping it all back out and making sure I put my needles in correctly? I don’t have anyone I can see personally about this so they can show me so hopefully someone on here can guide me in the right direction or explain it themselves.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer! I really appreciate it!
