Hello fellow knitters…so pleased to find this forum so I can continue to grow and learn. For now, I have a question that is bothering me about a pattern that I don’t seem intelligent enough to comprehend.
I’m making my first Cardigan sweater after oodles of afghans. I did the back first and had no problem shaping the armholes and shoulders as directed. My problem is the next step…the right front (and probably the left as well eventually). The instructions read as follows:
Work as for back, including all shaping and at the same time when piece measures 19".
I started the armhole shaping for the back at 14.75 inches as directed. Am I to start the shaping for the front at 19"? It doesn’t seem to make sense.
Also…“at the same time”. What does that mean exactly? Do the decrease for the armhole and shoulder together? Add the decrease numbers? I honestly don’t know what I’m supposed to do.
Help?! Forever grateful!!
