I am working on shaping the back neck and shoulders of my pattern. A lot of these concepts are new to me-- I haven't ever used a stitch holder and just worked part of a sweater and this is my first go at cables.
Here is the part that I am having trouble with:
"Maintaining continuity of rib pattern, patt across 9 sts, turn and leave rem sts on holder. Working on these 9 sts in patt for right side of neck, dec 1 st at neck edge of next and foll alt rows.
Bind off 4 sts, patt to end.
Bind off rem 2 sts."
I just decreased the stitch by k2tog, and am now on the WS. Do I work the first "Next row" and then decrease a row, then follow with the 2nd "Next row?"
I have frogged more than I have knit on this baby, so any help would be very appreciated.
