I am knitting an Adult Cardigan by Paton, and am trying to understand this line.
TO SHAPE NECK: NEXT ROW: Cast off 6 sts. (neck edge). Purl to end of row>>>I understand this! Decrease 1 st at neck edge on next 4 rows, then on flollowing alternate rows to 15 sts on needle.
(I am a little unclear about this. I am thinking that the neck edge would be on just one end so why would I have to decrease on next 4 rows)
So as the pattern reads would I do the following?
Do I decrease on next 4 rows ...then after the 4th row I would knit then decrease, knit then decrease..etc until there's 15 sts>
You do the decs every time you get to the neck edge for 4 rows. So BO, purl to the end, * turn and knit the next row, doing a k2tog at the end, turn, purl 2 tog, purl the rest of the row and repeat from the * I put in above. Then you would just k2tog at the end of the knit rows until you have 15 sts left.
