I am going to knit my first adult-sized sweater and not one that is in the round and have a couple of questions on the pattern. It's the Jesse's Flame pattern from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation. I'm actually not going to do the flame pattern.
The first question is what do I do when the pattern says, "Work 1 row even."?
The second question is when it comes to the neckline directions. It says, "Joining a new ball of MC to left front, work both sides of neck at once and cont to dec on st at each should edge EOR and, at the same time, BO 1 st from each neck edge EOR until there is 1 st on each side." I don't understand the portion of the instructions in bold. I don't get how to "work both sides of neck at once" especially since there are going to be 2 working yarns. The pattern doesn't say to break yarn from the original working yarn.
Can anyone help? Feel free to send me your written help to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance for your help.
