I’m new to knitting and have mainly knitted scarfs. I may have taken on a project beyond my skill level. I’m working on my first sweater: https://knitrowan.com/en/products/elisabeth
I’ve competed the pattern for the BACK and am now at the SHAPE SHOULDERS AND BACK section. This is where I’m struggling.
The pattern asks me to:
Cast off 4 [4:5:6:6] sts at beg of next 4 [4:2:2:2] rows.64 [70:85:91:99] sts.
Next row (RS): Cast off 4 [5: 5: 6: 6] sts, K until there are 18 [20: 29: 31: 34] sts on right needle and turn, leaving rem sts on a holder. Work each side of neck separately.
Dec 1 st at neck edge of next 5 [5:7:7:7] rows and at same time cast off 4 [5:5:6:6] sts at beg of 2nd row,then 4 [5:5:6:7] sts at beg of foll 1 [1:1: 2:2] alt rows,then – [-:6:-:-] sts at beg of foll – [-:1:-:-] alt row.
Cast off rem 5 [5:6:6:7] sts.
I think I have followed instructions above correctly. The math certainly works. The pattern now tells me to:
With RS facing, slip centre 20 [20: 17: 17: 19] sts onto a holder (for neckband), rejoin yarn and K to end.
Complete to match first side, reversing shapings.
What am I suppose to do?
THANKS SO MUCH
