Knitting a cardigan from's free patterns and I'm having a problem with the neck shaping on the right front. When I did the left front, I didn't have this problem. Problem is the left front directions are slightly differently than the one's for the right front.


Row 1[WS]: P2, p2tog, p to end of row.
Row 2[RS]: K to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2.


Row 1[WS]: P to last 4 sts, p2tog tbl, p 2.
Row 2[RS]: K 2, k2tog tbl, k to end of row.

When I knitted the Left front the RS where the neck shaping is (directions shown) the K2tog, P2tog were almost imperceptible which is how it should look. But now that I've started on the Right front, the K2tog tbl etc is VERY noticeable! I mean you can REALLY see it on the knitted side!

Why would there be any change in the neck shaping directions between the right and left front anyway? Can't I just knit the right front exactly like the left?

Thanks for the help...
