I am about to start the neck shaping on my sweater and I'm not sure if I understand it.
Here is the pattern: (at this point I have 64 sts on ndls)
Next Row (RS, dec)
: K20 sts, sl rem sts to st holder
Cont with sts on ndl as foll:
Dec 1 st at neck edge every other row twice, ending RS row complete [18 sts]
Sl rem sts to st holder
With RS facing, sl center 24 sts onto st holder (for base of neck), knit rem sts off st holder onto larger ndls. Starting with WS facing, work dec rows as for first neckline shaping [18 sts].
So I get the Next Row part it's the rest that I'm a little hazy on. So if I'm reading it right for the dec part: (after I knit the 20) I dec on the WS, knit a row, dec on WS, and knit another row so I end with a RS complete. How do I know what is the neck edge??
The rest confuses me. Aren't the rest of the stitches already on a st holder? And do they mean take the center 24 sts from the holder?? Don't I have 2 st holders at this point? ugh, I am way over thinking it and hurting my brain!!
