Pattern clarification
Hi-stormy night in NYC! Question on reading. Pattern...shaping arm hole: Dec 1st at neck edge in 5th row. Dec 1 st at neck edge only on 8th row then on 3 rows foll 10th row.

I think this must be obvious but I'm drawing a blAnk.

Thank you!

It is ambiguous. Depends on the shpe of the neckline. Is it a V-ncek? It's likely dec on the 5th, 8 rows later and then every 10th row 3 times. That would be decreases on rows 5, 13, 23,33,43.
The other possibility is rows 5, 8, 11,12 and 13 but that's an unusual shape for a neckline.
Is there a pattern link or can you give us the pattern name?

HI - The neck is more or less V-shaped. The pattern is by Rowan - Moorhouse. The Ralvery link is

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/moorhouse

Any further thoughts or confirmation of your first instinct would be greatly appreciated.

Gratefully -

Gretchen

Terrific! Yes, the gradual V shape is correct. So the first of the two choices in the above post.
I like this pattern and collar. Very good looking.

Question on Knitting in the round
I am a new knitter working on my fourth project which is the first time I am knitting in around... The pattern reads as follows

1 x 1 rub: round 1- k 1, p 1 Round 2- k the k system and p the p sts

I understand that but then it says work 5 rounds of 1 x 1 rib

Does this mean I do as follows:
Round 1
Round 2
Round 1
Round 2
Round 1?

1x1 rib is always the knit/purl/knit/purl/knit/purl, ad nauseum... so that's your pattern, the same as round 1, but you do it for 5 rounds.

But when it defined the 1 x 1 stitch it defined it as 2 rounds as follows:


1 x 1 [rib]: round 1- k 1, p 1 Round 2- k the k [sts] and p the p sts


So does these meant I repeat round 1 and round 2 Five times? So ultimately 10 rows??

Welcome to Knitting Help!
The instructions want you to do 5 rounds total.
You can think of it as you've written it out or you can think of it as 5 rounds of knit the knits and purl the purls. It will all work out to be the same.
