Shaping Neckline

My pattern says to “Pm before and after center 30 sts”. Does this mean mark 30 sts in from the left and then the right?

pm before and after center 30 sts.

This means to place the markers between the center stitches of your sweater.

For example, toe mark the 30 stitch-center of 46 sts total you would work 8 sts, pm, work 30 sts, pm, work 8.

Divide the total number of stitches by 2. Then subtract 15 (1/2 numbers of the neck sts) to get a number sts before placing a marker on each side.

46 divided by 2 = 23
23 - 1/2 of neck sts (15) = 8, this is number of stitches you work before and after markers.

I think I make it more confusing but I hope you get the idea.

Thanks for the question and visit.
