Asymmetrical Coat pattern by Helen Hamann from Elann
I'm becoming very frustrated with this pattern after finding several oddities and mistakes, which were corrected and reprinted. So here are the instructions on the pattern that I'm frustrated with:
Left shoulder shaping: On RS row, work in patt to 7 sts before end of row, w/t. Next RS row: Work in patt to 7 sts before last wrapped st, w/t. Next RS row: Work in patt to 8 sts before last wrapped st, w/t - Left shoulder shaping has been completed. Set aside left shoulder sts on stitch holder.
Back neck shaping: Rep first RS row from left shoulder shaping 4 more times - Back neck shaping has been completed.
Right shoulder shaping: Rep second RS row from left shoulder shaping twice, then first RS row from left shoulder shaping once -- Right shoulder shaping has been completed. K all sts, working the wrap tog with the wrapped st. Set aside right shoulder sts on stitch holder.
My question is: what do i do with the stitches left over from the back neck? I'm told to put the left and right shoulder stitches on a stitch holder, but what about the neck stitches? Later, there is no mention of any kind of BO. It tells me to graft the sts from the left and right shoulder shaping to the right and left front pieces. Where does that leave the neck shaping? Bah! I need to finish this for my mom before Christmas, but I keep running into obstacles.
