WHAT TO DO NEXT FOR MY CARDIGAN, PREVIOUS BUTTON BAND POSTER
Hello Knitters,

Thank you so much for your help with the Buttonbands post I put up last night. I have worked through that part of the pattern but to be honest I find this whole section really hard to follow. Just so everyone can fully understand what I am reading I am going to post the entire Left Front Section instructions. There are so many different things that are supposed to happen at once that I am lost again. Here is the section below, and I will mark on the pattern where I am now stuck;

Left front: Cast on 48-51-54-58 sts. Knit garter st for 12 cm [4.75"] over all sts. Continue with pattern, but knit the 6 edge sts at the center front as follows from edge (seen from the right side): 5 sts garter st, 1 st stockinette st.
Read the entire next section before knitting.
When the piece measures 46-47-49-50 cm [18 1/8" - 18.5" - 19.25" - 19.75"] inc 2 sts inside 1 edge st at the center front for collar - knit the increased sts for collar in garter st, keeping the 1 st in stockinette st between button bands and body. On the following 2 rows knit 2 rows garter st over only the 7 button band sts (short rows). Then inc 1 st inside 1 edge st 6 times every row, then 6 times every other row and then 6 times every 4th row = 20 sts increased for collar. At the same time when the piece measures 47-48-50-51 cm [18.5" - 18 7/8" - 19.75" - 20"] bind off for armhole at the side as on back.

THIS IS WHERE I AM UP TO, PLEASE HELP

At the same time when the piece measures 50-51-53-54 cm [19.75" - 20" - 20 7/8" - 21.25"] dec for the neck shaping (while increasing for collar) as follows: make decs inside the 1 stockinette st + garter sts for collar. Dec 1 st 18 times every other row - see knitting tips. When the piece measures 68-70-72-74 cm [26.75" - 27 5/8" - 28.25" - 29 1/8"] bind off shoulder sts + 6 button band sts = 18-18-19-19 sts bound off. There are now 20 garter sts on the needles (collar). Continue in garter st as follows: * 2 rows garter st over all sts, 2 rows garter st over only the outermost 16 sts *, repeat from * - * until the inner edge of collar measures approx. 8 cm [3 1/8"] (the outer edge should measure 16 cm [6.25"]). Put sts on a holder.

Any help you angels can give would really be appreciated. This is my first cardigan and I want it to turn out great.
