Shaping neck and shoulders on front of jumper
Hi Everyone, I'm new to knitting and am unsure as to what to do.
My pattern says: Rib 14, turn. *** Cont on these 14 sts. Dec one st at neck edge in every foll alt row until 11 sts rem. Then I just have to cont rib and then shape shoulder. For this I have to cast of 6 sts at beg of next row. Work 1 row then cast off rem 5 sts.***
I understand all this fine. When I've done the shaping for one shoulder, then I have to slip the next 9 stitches onto a stitch-holder. Join yarn to rem sts and rib to end. Rep from *** to ***, working 1 row more before shoulder shaping. My question is: Why do I work 1 more row before shoulder shaping? Doesn't that mean 1 shoulder will be 1 row more than the other?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
