Pattern Questions
Hi Everyone!
I've got more questions about the baby sweater pattern I'm working on. My questions are:
1. When the pattern says "end wrong side row" does that mean that the
row you end on is the worng side and when you start knitting
again you'll be on the right side, or is it the reverse?

2. Shape Neck
Pattern = Keeping continuity of pat, work aross 20 stitches, turn
and put rem 11 sts on a holder. Dec 1 st at neck edge every
right side row until 16 sts rem. Work even until front
measures same as back.
My questions on this are:
When I turn am I working on the rem 20 stitches on the
needle, correct?
I think 'work even' means continue working the pattern, but where
in the pattern do I start? This is a cable knit pattern.
And lastly, which side is the neck edge from which I am suppose to
do the decrease?
I'm really frustrated but want to be able to continue working this as it is my first sweater and I hope it will give me the confidence to knitting at a little higher level. Help please.... Thanks!

Correct, you will end on the wrong side. The next row will be a right side row.

Yup

You should work so as to retain the established pattern. If they didn't provide a cable chart, I highly recommend you get yourself a bit of graph paper and plot it out so you can focus on working the shaping and not worry as much about the cables

You know those 11 stitches you put on a stitch holder, they are the center and the "neck edges" are on either side of it.
