The pattern says : work 17rows dec 1 st at neck edge in next and every foll alt row. 2 questions:
1: dec 1 st will be on the purl side. Is it just p2tog? I tried looking online but they showed many ways.
2: it says at neck edge. At this point I have just placed half of my row on a stitch holder. Is the neck edge the outer edge or the edge close to the stitch holder ( would be middle of whole front).
Pattern is by denim tweed dk 9241. Sirdar.
The neck edge is the edge near the middle. The outer edge is the armhole edge. Yes, you can do p2tog for the decrease on the left side of the neck (this is the left side when you are wearing the top) but it would be better to do p2tog through the back loop (p2tog tbl)for the decreases on the right side. That way the line of the slant of the decreases will follow the line of the neck on each side.

With rs facing. Working on rem 60 sts. Slip 15 st on stitch holder. Rejoin yarn to rem 45 sts and pattern to end.
Does this mean the inside 15 sts go on st holder and i work the rest?
Also. How do you re-attatch yarn? I cant just tie it to the old piece because that was used to knit the one shoulder ( picture attatched). HELP!
I'd actually work the 15 sts first, then slip them to a holder so you don't have to rejoin the yarn, then work the 45 sts in pattern. But when you 'rejoin' yarn, you just leave a tail long enough to weave in, and start knitting with it. It won't pull out, you don't need to tie it to anything.
Sorry I didnt finish reading the comment. What do you mean by leave a tail?
Sorry for not attatching a picture. The site doesnt support mobile. Anyways. The end of the thread is up by one ahoulder. I am qorking on the middle ( on the stitch holder) and te other shoulder ( where i have to rejoin the yarn.
"Join right shoulder seam(check). With rs facing, using 3 1/4 mm needles pick up and knit 35 sts evenly along left side of neck, work accross 15 sts left on a stich holder at front of neck as follows : - p3, (k3, p3) twice, pick up and knit 35 sts evenly along right side of neck and knit accross 35 sts left on a stitch holder at back of neck as follows : - k10, p3, (k3, p3)twice, k9, inc in next st. 121 sts."
my confusion is what is "pick up" where do I "pick up" from? This time I inserted a link to a picture so hopefully it helps...
