I am shaping the neck on this boys sweater and I am using a British pattern which has confused me a few times. It is a leaflet so cannot share a link. I am just finishing up the left front (I have a divided front opening-see picture)
I just want confirmation that I am interpreting the pattern correctly. I have 29 sts on the needles.
I have just completed this instruction:
K1, sl1, K1, psso,1 time. K to last 9 sts, sl these last 9 sts onto stitch holder, turn.
I am now working the remaining 19 sts on the needle and am on the purl side.
Now instruction is to Dec 1 st at neck edge on next 4 rows, then foll 2 alt rows, at same time dec 1 st at armhole edge on 4th row. 12 sts. I then work 5 rows straight and cast off.
Here’s what I think it says:
Row1 - purlside - p1, p2tog, p to end = 18 sts
Row2 - knit to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1 = 17 sts
Row3 - p1,p2tog, p to end = 16 sts
Row4 - k1,sl1,k1,psso,K to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1 = 14 sts
Row5 - purl
Row6 - K1,sl1,K1,psso, K to end = 13 sts
Row7 - P1,p2tog, P to end. = 12 sts
Work 5 rows straight and cast off.
I’m just a bit confused as to which rows are considered foll 2 alt rows.
Can anyone decipher my post to help me determine if I am doing it right. Any help would be much appreciated.
