Ok Im doing Ginger by Kim Hargreavesand I have a question…or two.
Here is the portion of the pattern i am having a problem with…the questions are in red.
Divide for neck
Next row (RS): K28 (30: 32: 34: 36), K2tog tbl, K1, pick up loop lying between
needles and place loop on right needle (note: this loop does NOT count as a st), sl
next st knitwise and turn, leaving rem sts on a holder.
31 (33: 35: 37: [B]39[/B]) sts.
Work each side of neck separately.
Next row: P tog first st and the loop, P to end.
These 2 rows set decreases and slip st edging along neck edge.
Keeping sts correct as set, cont as folls:
[B]Dec 1 st at neck edge of next and foll 4 alt rows and at same time inc 1 st at beg of next row.[/B][COLOR=“Red”]how am i supposed to decrease and increase and wind up with 35 stitches from the begining 39? and the [I]beg of next row [/I]would be at the neck edge. and after looking further in the pattern, i see the increase should be at the arm side, so im chalking that up to be, im either reading it wrong or its a typo. [/COLOR]
27 (29: 31: 33: 35) sts.
Work 1 row, ending with a WS row.
