I'm knitting my first sweater and it went well until I got to the neck. It said to knit x amount of stitches, then BO x amount of stitches, then knit x amount of stitches, so there's a gap in the middle for the neck, which I did. Now it says to knit and decrease stitches every other row, but I'm confused how to knit across the neck area. Does that make sense? Maybe I'm just being stupid here, but I'm so confused! If I just knit straight across then it connects and the neck doesn't work. How do I knit it without this happening?
I hope this made sense!
