Then what does what does 1 alt row mean?
I am going mad i am stuck lol, when i picked up pattern i thought i could do it
I'd say when you cast off two stitches that shapes the side. The decreases should be the other end of the row to shape the neck.
Foll 1 alt rows means following 1 alternate row.
It makes a difference whether to do the cast off and decrease in the same line. When it says to cast off does it say to knit to end or anything or as Gatica said is there a stitch count?
With the neck decreases, work the decreases on two rows, then knit the next row without decreasing, then the 4th row will have the decrease again and that will give you the alternate row.
So it could look like this:
Row 1: cast off two and decrease at end of row.
Row 2: decrease at start of row
Row 3: knit
Row 4: decrease at start
Or, if you don't work the cast off and decrease in the same row it could look like this:
Row 1: cast off 2
Row 2: decrease at neck edge (start of row)
Row 3: decrease at neck edge again (end of row)
Row 4 knit
Row 5: decrease at neck edge
Does that help at all? Kinda hard to explain!
