Sounds like something outta Harry Potter!...
I have been working a pattern through the Sweater Wizard computer program, and came across an instruction I didn't quite understand.
It is a V neck sweater....and basically...you are knitting around the neck edge. Stop 2 stitches before the PM (Place Marker, this of course would be at the lowest point in the V), SSK, PM, Knit, K2tog.
I have searched the help files in the program, and the most I can find is that PM means Place Marker...It would make sense to me that for the sake of symmetry, one would ssk, k the pm and then k2tog. But written as above, it seems as if one might slip or move said pm.
I have not read another V neck pattern to know for sure...so I turn to the knowledgeable for help...how would you read that??
