I’ve been working on this top and the wording has been so hard to understand. Finally, I get to the end and the shoulder is higher than the scoop neckline, the directions say to (now this is putting all of the stitches back on circular needle) knit but if you do as the pattern says, the shoulder curls over to meet that neckline. What am I doing wrong here? Thank you!
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Work stockinette st back and forth on needle from mid front, AT THE SAME TIME slip 1 st on stitch holder each side towards mid front at the end of every row a total of 9-10-11-13-14-15 times (= 46-50-54-60-64-68 sts in total on stitch holder). AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 69-71-73-75-77-79 cm / 27 1/8"-28"-28 3/4"-29½"-30 3/8"-31" slip 40-44-48-54-58-62 sts mid back on a stitch holder and complete each side separately. Now slip1 st at the end of every row towards back piece on stitch holder until there are 46-50-54-60-64-68 sts on stitch holder at the front and the back. There are now 54-58-66-70-80-88 sts left on needle, slip these sts on a new stitch holder. Work the other side in the same way.
Work all sts from stitch holders on the same circular needle size 4 mm / US 6, AT THE SAME TIME pick up 1 st between each time a st was slipped on stitch holder all the way round and K this st tog with next st (do this to avoid a hole in transition) = 200-216-240-260-288-312 sts. Insert a marker mid back – ROUND NOW BEG HERE!
