ok, so when the pattern uses the word "following", it means to knit a regular row? Referring to the pattern I posted.

I know it's not written like that, I was just laying it out for you row by row.

Following means 'after'; the clue to knit a plain row with no decs is in the words 'following 2 alt rows'. Which translates into - after this, work the decs every other row 2 times. So you do a dec row, then a plain row, a dec row, then a plain row.

Ok. Well I'll work it that way. It just seemed weird that it would decrease both sides of the piece, then decide to decrease on one side.. it makes it look sloppy and it doesn't fit with the back piece because it never decreased on the back. Thanks again

3, dec
4, plain with no decrease
5, dec,
6, plain
7 dec
From Sue's text you can see rows 1, 2 and 3 are decreasing both sides, 5, 6 and 7 decrease only one side....

When you say 'sides' do you mean RS and WS or right 'edge' and left 'edge'? These are just the neck edge decreases, you may be doing something else completely at the sleeve/armhole edge. If you can give us a link to the pattern we can explain it to you easier.

Most patterns will do decreasing on only the RS of the piece, but sometimes you need a more rapid dec and you do them on both RS and WS for a couple rows, then go to just the RS rows.

Oh - you mean both sides of the neck, the shoulders. Yes you do the same shaping on both shoulders at the neck edge. The directions are for doing them separately because you do the fronts separately; first the Right Front then the Left front, or whichever.
