It’s not absolutely critical, since I imagine that you’ll be picking up stitches for the collar edge, but it looks like you’re working the decrease on the left side on the purl side of the sweater, correct?

In that case you could work a ssp http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/decreases for a left leaning decrease.

On the right side of the sweater, you’d want a right leaning decrease and would work it on the knit edge at the end of the row, so a k2tog would work there.

It is my opinion if you are going to pick up stiches for the neck, do your decreases 1 or 2 stiches in to make a smooth and neat pick up for the neckline.

Thank you both soooo much. I can get cracking again now:woohoo:
