Decreasing Neck Edge - Knit Straight On Circular Needles - Still Confused

Poncho Neck Edge

Poncho Neck Edge

Child's Poncho: I am working the rows back and forth (not in the round). Instructions say: "SHAPE NECK: 1st ROW: Pat 25 sts. Cast off 11 sts. Pat to end of row (which I have done).

Next working both sides at the same time and keeping cont of pat. dec 1 st at each neck edge on next 4 rows to 21 sts.

How do I work both sides at the same time? Do I reattach wool and work from neck edge to outer edge decreasing and keeping pattern. I should mention this is Cake wool which makes a striped poncho.

Hi,

No worry. I'll try to explain as best as I can. I hope it will help.

I love the color of the pocho and the seed st.

On the next row, you work toward the neck edge and decrease one st
at the neck line ( you can do p2tog on the wrong side and k2tog on the right side). Then skip over the bind off sts. At the beginning of the neck line on your left needle is where you'll be working next. Using a different strain of yarn, decrease a st here and work to the end of row ( you were right about attaching a new yarn!).

Now you can work each side of the neck back and forth but at the same time. Do decreases at each side of the neck for 3 more rows.

Best to your project!

Ratcha
