I’m at the neck on the back piece for a sweater pattern and for some reason having a lot of trouble figuring out what they mean by these instructions (I’m following the small size/the one not in brackets):
Shape shoulders and back neck
Next row (RS): Cast off 3 [3: 3: 3: 4] sts, patt until there are 25 [27:
28: 31: 33] sts on right needle and turn, leaving rem sts on a holder.
Work each side of neck separately.
Keeping patt correct, dec 1 st at neck edge of next 4 rows, then on foll
3 alt rows and at same time cast off 3 [3: 3:
4: 4] sts at beg of 2nd and foll 4 [3: 2: 4: 3] alt rows, then
– [4: 4: -: 5] sts at beg of foll – [1: 2: -: 1] alt rows.
Work 1 row.
Cast off rem 3 [4: 4: 4: 5] sts
There’s no real image of the finished back piece and I guess mainly I’m trying to figure out if the decreases are all supposed to be along the neck. It’s this sweater:
Sorry if this is written terribly, I’ve been trying to write out this part of the pattern more simply for myself but I’ve just made myself more confused!
