Short Row Shoulder Shaping
Ive just returned to knitting after a very long break and it seems that what I thought I knew is not the best way these days.
I've only ever cast off stitches in "steps" when doing shoulder shapings but when I Googled for the best way to sew these stepped seams up all of the answers came up recommending short row shaping.
So I Googled short row shaping and found a good tutorial on Purl Bee.
I pulled back the shoulders of my cardigan and knitted them again using short rows.
Now I am trying to figure out what to do with the back of the cardigan.
Yes, I can do the short row shoulders but what happens about the neck? It says to cast off three stitches and then again on the following alternate row.
Do I cast the neck stitches off or do I somehow do short rows at both ends of the knitting?
I'm totally confused and hope you can understand my question.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
