And just for the sake of clarity here's the pattern verbatim (obviously I"m leaving out irrelevant sts numbers based on the size garment I'm working on)
DIVIDE FOR VEE NECK -
1st row - K2tog, K35, P6, C4F, P3, turn.
Cont on these 49 sts.
2nd row - K3, P4, K6, purl to last 2 sts, P2tog.
3rd row - K2tog, knit to last 15 sts, K2tog, P6, K4, P3.
4th row - K3, P4, K6, purl to last 2 sts, P2tog.
Last 4 rows for patt for rem, noting dec.
Keeping patt correct, dec one st at armhole edge in every row 3 times, AT SAME TIME dec one st at neck edge (inside 13 sts as before) in next row, then in every foll alt row until 36 sts rem, then in every foll 4th row until 27 sts rem.
Cont in patt withot shaping until armhole measures same as Back to beg of shoulder shaping, working last row on wrong side.
