Help with neck and armhole decreases
(Novato, CA, USA)
I am knitting my first sweater and need help understanding the instructions for the front neck shape. I’ve read it over several times and it’s still very confusing! I begin with a set of 10 stitches for the first side of neck. But, please help explain what... “keeping all raglan armhole decreases correct as set, decrease 1 stitch at neck edge of next 4 rows, then on following 0 alternate row and at same time decrease 1 stitch at raglan armhole edge of 2nd and following 1 alternate rows” mean? 4 stitches. Work 1 row, ending with a WS row.
I’ve already decreased 1 stitch at neck edge in each of the next 4 rows, so I am currently left with 6 stitches on the WS (purl side). Did I do this correctly? Or should it be decrease 1 stitch in 4 rows, with 9 stitches remaining? What does 0 alternate row mean? Please help spell out what I should be doing in each row. Any help is appreciated!
