Rhombulky Pullover by Tracy Purtscher

I’m knitting this pullover…I’m stuck on this: Neck Shaping, Size Small/Med…
What does this mean…Row 11, working both sides at once, dec 2 sts (working ssk twice)) each neck edge every RS row twice??

Welcome to the forum!
You’re working both shoulders at the same time with 2separate yarn strands.
You should dec at the neck edge on the next 2 right side (RS) rows. Work this dec (ssk, ssk) on each side of the neck.

Thank you for such a prompt reply, so glad I found this website! So doing two SSK’s on each neck edge would decrease 4 sts on each neck edge on the RS row that would equal 8 decreased sts, if done twice?

I don’t know why this threw me. I was concerned because I didn’t end up with the sts I needed when finished so I must have done something wrong.

Each ssk decreases one stitch, so 2sts at one neck edge, 2sts at the other edge, so yes, 4 sts each dec row. For 2 dec rows that’s 8 sts total, you’re right.
