Hello. I have found a pattern for a sweater. It seemed simple enough till i got to the front. I am very confused. here is the link
Here is where I am confused:
Divide for Neck - K 21 (23-25) sts, place on holder for left side, k 18, place on holder for neck, k to end; 21 (23-25) sts.
NOTE: To dec., p 2 tog. at end of p rows and k 2 tog. at beg. of k rows. Dec. 1 st at neck edge every row 3 times; every 2nd row 3 times, shaping shoulder as for left side of back when armhole is same length. Take up sts of left side.
NOTE: To dec., p 2 tog. at beg. of p rows and slip, k and pass at end of k rows.
Beg. at neck edge, finish left side to correspond to right side. Do not break yarn.
FRONT NECK RIBBING - With size 8 needles, pick up and k 16 sts on left side of neck, take up and k 18 sts, pick up and k 16 sts on right side; 50 sts.
Is this the shaping of the neck?? I don't get how to do this. I understand how to do decreases and all but I'm not understanding what this part of the pattern is for.. Is says to shape shoulder as for left side of back when armhole is same length? I don't know how to do it. I guess what I am asking is am I supposed to follow the above portion of the pattern in sequence and if so how? Thanks
