Working on 1 peice knitted sweater and habing problems reading the front nech shaping of pattern. The schematic shows 7 decreases. Here are the instructions as written: On next RS row, work to marker. Remove. With a second ball of yarn, bind off 1 st. Complete row. WS: work to 2 sts before front neck edge, dec 1. (repeat on all wrong side rows to * RS: At neck edge, bind off 1 st. RS: At neck edge, bind off 2 sts. 7 rws are complete* Are bind offs counted as decreases? If so, should I repeat this pattern until I have completed 7 rows? Would it be: 1. WS dec 1 2. RS bind 1 3. WS dec 1 4. RS bind 2 5. WS dec 1 6. RS bind 1 (this adds to 7 decreases here) 7. ???? It then rquires to reverse for right neck shaping. I just can't figure this out!

Remove. With a second ball of yarn, bind off 1 st. Complete row. WS: work to 2 sts before front neck edge, dec 1. (repeat on all wrong side rows to * RS: At neck edge, bind off 1 st. RS: At neck edge, bind off 2 sts. 7 rws are complete* You have your decreases starting on a WS row, but your instructions start with a RS row. Am I missing something? This is how I interpret the instructions: row 1- RS - bind off = 1 dec row 2 - WS - dec 1 = 1 dec row 3 - RS - bind off = 1 dec row 4 - WS - dec 1 -= 1 dec row 5 - RS - bind off 2 = 2 dec row 6 - WS - dec 1 = 1 dec. This gets you your 7 decreases, but I don't know where they get the 7 rows, either. Is there a link to the pattern? I think what I would do is follow the dec directions on the one side and just do the same on the other side so they'll be equal. You can work one row even after the decrease rows to get up to 7 rows. I don't think it'll make any difference. __________________ "Trust the pattern!" Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.

Was very confused, because it said 7 rows, 7 decreases and no matter how I figured it, it was not coming out. The local Yarn shop has a program called The Swaeter Wizzard, this is where the pattern is from. Thanks again! Judy
