Pattern interpretation help ... please!!
Hi Knitters,

I'm having a problem understanding this instruction ....
Shape neck. Work both sides at the same time. Work 13 (14,15) sts. Slip the next 10 sts to a holder. With a second ball of yarn, work remaining 13 (14,15) sts. Dec 1 st at neck edge every row 5 (6,6) times, until 8 (8,9) sts remain.

... given that I'm supposed to work both sides at once, does this mean I'll be decreasing 1 stitch EACH NECK SIDE (so technically two times per row ...)?? Also does it mean until 8 stitches remain on EACH SIDE or in total (four per side) ...

Thank you!

You will be decreasing at each neck edge--this will shape it evenly.

You start with 13 stitches per side and decrease 5 per side, so you will end up with 8 per side.
