For the armholes, the instructions are:
row1: BO 10 sts
row2: BO 10 sts (so now you've bound off 10 sts on each side of the back)
rows 3-8: BO 2 sts at the beginning of each row (when you finish you'll have a gradual stairstep of decreases on each side)
row 9: purl across
row 10:k1, k2tog knit to 3 sts before the end, ssk, k1 (you can find directions for ssk under the Free Videos tab at the top of the page, decreases)
row 11: purl across
repeat rows 10 and 11 three times more(a total of 4 times)
Now you work even (that's without any more decreases) until you get to 22 3/4 inches and you're ready for the shoulder shaping. Come back if you find a problem with the neck and shoulder or if these directions aren't clear. And good luck with the sweater!
