Now that you're dividing the front for the v-neck, you have to work each side on it's own.
So you'll work the directions for the first row, leave the rest of the stitches on a spare needle or holder or piece of yarn, and purl back on the stitches that you just knit.
After that side of the V is done, you'll put the other stitches back on the needle and work it according to the directions for that side.
"Trust the pattern!"
Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.
Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
