  1. Hi! Love the pattern, but I am a little confused at the “Shape back neck” It says: Next row(RS): patt 24, turn and work on these sts. If I follow the pattern, I would end up with 23 stitches here, But the next row says bo 1 st at neck edge. Patt to end. 23 It would be 22, because of the bind off. There are 69 sts on the needle. 24 for the right shoulder back, 21 for the center to be put on the stitch holder, 24 for the future left shoulder back. If I start with 24, reduce 1 because of the pattern, then reduce another 1 because of the bo, then reduce again because of pattern, I end up with 21 stitches on my needle to be transferred over to a stitch holder and is the Right Shoulder back. Does this seem correct to you?

    1. In this case, you will need to adjust the pattern a little bit. For example, if you need to work row 1, the first row will be K 13, P 1, K 1, YO, S2KP, YO, K 1, P 1, K 4, turn and work on these sts. You should not work k2tog of lace pattern A, otherwise the sts count will not be right. Becasue not everyone will end with the same row, so I can not detail the way how to adjust the pattern. If you have any question, please let me know. I’ll be happy to help to clarify.
