Shaping neckline and waist AT THE SAME TIME?

Hello all,

I chose an ambitious pattern for my first cardigan and thought I understood it, but have now run into to AT THE SAME TIME hiccups that I could use some help on.

The pattern can be found here:

For your reference I’m knitting the small size so any st #s I use will refer to that section of the pattern.

Essentially the issue I’m having is that the increase row of the waist shaping occurs at the same time as the neckline decrease and on the same side of the fabric [RS] and I can’t figure out to merge the two:

Increase Row 1 [RS]: [Work in pattern to marker, k1, m1, k2, yo, sk2p, yo, k2, m1, k1, slip marker] twice, work in pattern to end.
[B]AT THE SAME TIME[/B]
Neckline Decrease Row [RS]: Sl1, p2, ssk, work in pattern to last 5 sts, k2tog, p2, k1.

How do I integrate these two very different sets of instructions in the same row?

That’s a lovely cardigan and Knitty ranks it as “Piquant” which is 3 out of 4 on a scale of difficulty.

The neck decreases come at the beginning and end of the row while the waist shaping is at the markers. So you would integrate the two like this (neck decs underlined):
[U]Sl1, p2, ssk, [/U] [Work in pattern to marker, k1, m1, k2, yo, sk2p, yo, k2, m1, k1, slip marker] twice, work in pattern [U]to last 5 sts, k2tog, p2, k1[/U]
