I’m working on the tilted duster from the latest Interweave Knits, and this is my first sweater. I’m trying to finish the shoulder/neck shaping, and the pattern says:
At each neck edge, BO 5 sts 2 times, and at the same time, BO 4 sts at each shoulder edge 2 times - no sts rem.
I’m confused. Right now I have kind of two sets of stitches – the shoulder parts on either side of the neck, and each has its own ball of yarn. The neck sts have already been bound off. So I have one ball of yarn ready to be worked close to the neck on one side, and another ball ready to be worked close to the shoulder on the other side. Hope that makes sense. So I can start at either the neck part or the shoulder part, and I’m going to assume that I start at the neck edge since that’s the first thing the pattern mentions.
I’m guessing a proper course of action might be to BO 5 sts at the neck edge, knit to end. Turn, BO 4 shoulder sts, knit to end. Turn, BO 5 neck sts, knit to end, turn, BO 4 shoulder sts, and I’ll have BO’ed everything in this section. Then I repeat on the other side.
Does this sound right? Sorry if it’s so confusing!
