knitting 1st sweater -- help!!!
I'm relatively new to knitting and have decided to tackle my first sweater. I started with the back piece and have been working in st st. Can anyone help me make sense of this next part???? I've indicated my confusion in brackets.....
Shape back neck
Next row K24 sts, turn and work on these sts for first side of back neck.
Dec one st at neck edge of the next 4 rows. [next p row, k row, p row, k row =or= next 4 k rows as part of stockinette stitch?]
Work 3 rows straight. [again, 1 k row, 1 p row, 1 k row =or= 3 rows of st st?]
Thanks again. I think I read somewhere that decreases are only done on k rows, but just checking to be sure.
