I’m knitting a baby sweater and despite asking my Mom for help, we are still confused by the pattern. For the left front piece of the cardigan, on the top half, it says:
“Cont to dec at armhole edge on next and every foll alt row as before AT THE SAME TIME, dec 1 st at neck edge on next 4 rows. 4 sts. Keeping neck edge straight, cont dec at armhole edge as before to 2 sts, ending with a P row.”
I understand that I’m supposed to decrease on the armhole edge every other row. But when I decrease on the neck edge, it makes it look weird - it doesn’t seem like I should be decreasing on the buttonhole edge because it makes it not straight/perpendicular to the bottom edge.
Any advice? Or help understanding whether there’s a better way to interpret this pattern or if I should just adapt it differently?
