I'm trying to follow this pattern to shape the neck of a sweater, but am at a complete loss for what the following means:
Next Row (RS): K2, ssk, k6 (7, 7, 8, 8), sl next 7 (8, 8, 8, 9) sts to a holder; join a 2nd ball of yarn and k to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2 - 9 (10, 10, 11, 11) sts on each side.
Work both sides at the same time with separate balls of yarn.
Thisis my first ever sweater. I am doing the smallest size, so the numbers in brackets do not apply to me.
