I am knitting a sweater vest and will need to start shaping the armholes soon. The directions say:
"Bind of 6 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows, 78 stitches. Decrease 1 stitch every Right Side row 10 times- 58 stitches. Work even until armholes measure 9 inches, end on Wrong Side.
To Shape the armholes, bind off 6 stitches at the beginning of the next two rows, then 5 stitches at the beginning of the next two rows. Bind off remaining 36 stitches for the back neck."
How do I know which is WS and RS? Will I decrease 1 stitch every other row then when it says to decrease 1 stitch every right side row? I’m just not sure I am understanding it correctly.
It then goes on to explain how to knit the front. So I will basically end the front and back with two separate knit pieces that I will sew together (as explained in finishing section), right? Just making sure I am understanding this, as this is my first sweater.
