good to see a mod online here, can you please help me with my next question.

If you look at the pattern I've typed out earlier in this thread;

I'm now up to the part that says:

Keeping patt correct, dec one st at armhole edge in every row 3 times, AT SAME TIME

OK so based on the fact that the pattern (row 1) starts on the "right side" of the garment, I need to infact start with a K2tog and dec one further stitch? yes, please help? :-)

David, the vest looks very good. Wonderful work.
For the current project, you'll start with the k2tog at the armhole edge, then end the next row with the p2tog and begin the following row with a k2tog. That's the 3x that the pattern is calling for at the armhole edge. Don't forget the At The Same Time decreases on the neck edge.

Right the RS row begins with a dec at the armhole edge, then you would dec on the WS row at the same edge, then another dec on the next RS row. That's for the Left shoulder (as you wear it), you also do the neck decreases at the same time. If you're also doing the Right shoulder you dec at the end of the RS row, the beg of the WS and end of the next RS row at the armhole edge. While doing the neck decreases for that shoulder too.

You're sure?

multi coloured stripes is simmering away in my mind while I think of a nice project that I can knit ... the green vest was (fairly) simple, thought the knitted up bands were a bit of a nightmare ...

Oh, wow! That vest is really cool looking! Nice fit, perfect stitches, evenly spaced buttons, the whole nine yards!

Thanks for sharing the picture (and I'm so glad to hear that your world--and ours--is still spinning merrily along)!

So back to my question - which has sort of been answered.

The "pattern" (where it says Last 4 rows form the pattern) actually contains decreases and purl 2 togethers: soooooo any further decreases are ON TOP of those already in the pattern, like the extra one at the neck edge.

Gawd I'm dumb! sorry.

You're not dumb! Just inexperienced, but you're learning, so cut yourself some slack.

Yeah so, if you do one shoulder at at time, you're only working on half the sts, and that's all spelled out here -

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.

The k2tog at beg of row 1 and 3 are the armhole edge, the p2tog at the end of row 2 is too.
Then on row 3, there's a k2tog 15 sts before the end and that's the V decrease. Looks like R 4 has another dec at the end for the armhole edge. Then keep repeating those 4 rows except you don't do the decs at the armhole edge anymore, and the dec at the neck edge will be every other row (5th, 7th...) until you have 36 stitches, then the neck dec will be every 4th row until 27 sts are left.
