Confused on sweater's armhole and neck edge
Cable pattern:
Row 1: P1, sl 2 on spare pin, K2, K2 from spare needle, P1
Row 2: K1, P4, K1
Row 3: P1, K4, P1
Row 4: As Row 1

With Right Side facing patt 6 sts, K2tog, K2, cast off 8 sts, K to end of row.

Next row: Cast off 2 sts (armhole edge) P11 sts, P8 sts from spare pin (pocket lining) over cast off sts, P3, K1, P4, K1. <<This is where I've stopped, with 28 sts.

Now K all in SS except the 6 cable sts at neck edge. K2tog inside of cable sts every 4th row 6 times and at same time K2tog armhole edge every other row twice (20 sts).


So where I'm stopped at, I've got two rows until I have to cable again. Is that the first row the k2tog inside the cable is at? And with the k2tog, would I still k1 to fit the cable pattern? I've tried thinking this over, but I'm stumped.

Hi and welcome to Knitting Help!
OK, it seems to me that you've stopped after finishing a WS row. You would have 2 more rows and the row after that would be the cable cross row, a RS row. Yes, that would be the row to do the next k2tog. Continue with the k2tog every 4th row which will be easy to remember because it the same row as the cable cross.
I'm not sure which k1 you mean but you don't want to use any of the 6sts that make up the cable for the k2tog.

I think the cable pattern should be:
Row 1: P1, sl 2 on spare pin, K2, K2 from spare needle, P1
Row 2: K1, P4, K1
Row 3: P1, K4, P1
Row 4: As Row 2

Thank you for the welcome!

You're right about that last row in the cable pattern. That was a typo on my part. I'm still confused about the k2tog, because it says "inside of cable sts."

The neck is to end up shaped like in the photo. I may just end up putting a safety line in to continue and frog it if it doesn't come out.

When the pattern says "inside of cable: it doesn't mean within the 6st cable itself. It means between the cable and the armhole edge. You can see in the photo that the cable remains intact but the neck edge slants due to the decreases which are next to the cable.
Yes, a lifeline is a great idea.
The sweater looks lovely. See how it goes and if it's still not right, come back and let us know.
