I have shapped most of the shoulder thus;
cast off the rem 13 sts (this was what i had left from doing my 3 decreases and working the next four rows) DONE
with RS facing, slip centre 12 sts onto a holder, rejoin yarn to rem sts, k to end- DONE
Dec 1 st at neck edge on next 3 rows (13 sts)- DONE
Work one row, ending with WS facing for next row- Now i have done this but only on the sts i was working the decreases on, the 12 centre sts still sitting in the holder, is this rigt or should i have done them incl the 12 sts on holder?
The way i have done it, i have left rhe 12sts on the holder and they are still there at the moment, so in my head this next bit is going to be worked on the sts i have just decreased AND the 12 centre sts (which look like a row down) and in myhead this looks right to give me a button hole??
Then after i have confirmed the above little bit the next bit, i think i get but want to check;
*shape back button border*
(WS), P2, inc next st, (P3, inc in next st) 2 times, P to end 16 sts.
Can you adv me what this instruction means and also tell me why there is the bit in brackets, is it because i am P3, inc in next st twice?
i feel like i am asking to much questions so apologies
