Shape neck...help please
Hi, I'm confused with this pattern: Keeping cont of pat, dec 1 st at neck edge on next 3 rows, then on following 2 alt rows. Does it mean the next 3 "neck edge" rows? That would mean alt rows too, wouldn't it?

Obviously I'm a beginner and would appreciate any help. Thank you in advance.

Hi yes, there's a few people online, but you need to give it more than 5 minutes to answer you.

There aren't 'neck edge rows', but the rows have edges at the neck. When you're at the neck edge of the piece, dec there, every row for 3 rows. Then skip a row and dec every other row twice.

so all the decreases are on the neck edge? Because it doesn't say to skip a row. Thank you for all the help.

Usually they are unless there is a reason such as part of the design.

It would help answer your question if we knew what pattern you are using. A link is good, too. If you can't do that then include a few lines of the part you are concerned with. (not the whole pattern)

It says " then on following 2 alt rows." The 'alt' rows means alternate rows which is the same as every other one. First you dec on 3 rows, then go to every other one. So like this...

1, dec
2, dec
3, dec
4, plain with no decrease
5, dec,
6, plain
7 dec

the pattern is not written like that...it's more paragraph form...

Shape Neck: Next rowCast off 10 sts. Pat. to end of row.
Work 1 row even in pat. Keeping cont. of pat, dec 1 st at neck edge on next 3 rows, then on following 2 alt rows. Thank you for your patience
