Work the next row in whatever stitch you're doing and then decrease ot the beginning and end of the next row. Continue working one row with no decreases, the next row with a decrease at the beginning and at the end of the row until there are 92sts left.
After I done the Shape Armholes, do I cast off or cont. on to Shape Back neck? Work the 49 rows and then continue directly on to Shape Back neck.
What's Dec one st at neck edge in next and foll alt rows? Now you're going to work on only some of the sts, with an opening for the neck. You'll be working up one shoulder. One edge is the armhole edge and the other edge is the neck edge. Decrease at the neck edge.
Do I cont on to Shpae shoulder? Working from the armhole edge, cast off 9sts, knit across the row, turn, purl back across the row and then turn. Bind off 9 sts again on this row at the armhole edge.
Thank you so much. It really helps. But I have more questios please:
On the Shape Back Neck: K31, turn cont on these 31 sts for right side of back neck. Purl 1 row. Decrease one st at neck edge in next and foll alt rows until 26 sts rem. Purl 1 row.
Do I purl 1 entire row for all 92 sts? or just the 31 sts?
Do I decrease one st at the beg of just the 31 sts rows? and every row of the 31 sts rows? or every other rows of the 31 sts rows until 26 sts rem? Again, do I purl 1 entire row? or just the now 26 sts row??
Shape Sholder: Cast off 9 sts at beg of next and foll alt row. Work 1 row. Cast off rem 8 sts. Slip next 30 sts onto a stitch holder and leave for band. With right side facing, join yarn to rem 31 sts and knit to end.??? Please tell me what does all the above mean?? I am so lost?
Cont on these 31 sts for left side of back neck. Purl 1 row. Dec one st at neck edge in next and foll alt row until 26 sts rem. work 2 rows stocking st. ?? So, do I dec one sts every row in the beg. or at the end until 26? Work 2 rows stocking st. IS this = 1 row k and 1 row p? Also, for Decrease sts, do I do K2 together? or which type of sts should I do the decrease sts on?
Sorry for all the questions. This is my first project with clothing, all my prior projects were just scrafs.
Again, very appreciated your help any one.
Thank you very much,
