Elsebeth Lavold Iris pattern "Work right side to correspond" question
I'm currently knitting the back of Elsebeth Lavold's Iris tunic in The Enchanted Garden Collection: http://www.knittingfever.com/c/elseb.../?pattern=2285
When I start doing the front, the directions are to Work as for the back with 8 fewer rows, then shape the front neck with short rows:

Left side: work 44 sts; turn and work back. Work 5 sts fewer on the following 2 rows on RS. End on a row 3 or 11 and place sts on a holder.

Then it says to "Work right side to correspond," which I don't understand how to do exactly. I don't work it exactly the same way as the left side, do I? Specific help would be appreciated (please).

To reverse the shaping for the right side of the sweater, work the short rows starting on the wrong side row to make a mirror image of the left side.

Okay - it's the same but the short rows are done on the WS rows. Thanks! I will try that when the time comes. I guess you start the short rows on the first WS that you come to.

Right--do it on the row before or after where you did it for the left side.
