I am stuck on the shaping of the neck on this gown…Here is what the pattern reads:
[B]Next Rw: K8, and sl st to a stitch holder for neck; k8, knit 8 and slip to a stitch holder for neck, k8- 8 sts each side.[/B]
[U]Next Rw: P5, p2tog, pl across first side and slip to a st holder for shoulder[/U]; p1, p2tog, p5 across second side and slip to a st holder for sholder-7 sts each side.
The parts that are [B]bold[/B] are confusing me. I thought I got it but then I start the [U]underlined[/U] part…Am I suppose to p5 from the stitch holder and put it back on the stitch holder? And when I’m done with the back does it all go on the stitch holder? And the part that is just [B]bolded[/B], is that back slit suppose to stay separate or join it at this point???
