I just realized I never posted my FO pics for this! I finished it back in January and have gotten less wear than I'd hoped out of it--I think I should have made it in a solid color, though it does make a great team spirit sweater (Go Blue Devils!) for March Madness. It's in Bernat Softee Chunky and worked up very quickly when I was actually spending time on it.

I guess it is worth mentioning that I have started this. I am 15 rows into the waist. It's my first sweater, so far so good. I am using acrylic (Vanna's Choice in purple) because I don't want to go buy nice yarn for my first sweater and find out that it sucks. Hopefully everything will fit/drape alright/not need blocking.

Synne, nice finished jumper!

msg, nice to hear that someone else is joining the party after the first batch is done. Smiley
I sadly stalled a bit on mine, as I am not sure if the waist will fit and don't really dare going on, whilst at the same time I really don't want to frog something already!

Plus I started another lacy top which works up even more quickly, hehehe...

And I should really take some in progress shots - they'll hopefully come soon!

I am working on the neckline and this is coming up and I am not sure what much of it means:

Divide for Armholes:
Next Row [Row 15 of Neckline Decrease Chart, RS]: Work 14[17, 17, 20, 23, 26, 29] sts in pattern, k2[2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1] and place these 16[19, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30] sts on hold for Right Front, BO 6[6, 6, 6, 8, 8, 8] sts, work 38[44, 48, 50, 54, 60, 66] sts in pattern (39[45, 49, 51, 55, 61, 67] sts on right needle), working selvedge sts in stockinette st, and place these sts on st holder for Back, BO 6[6, 6, 6, 8, 8, 8] sts, k1[1, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0] (2[2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1] sts on right needle), work in pattern to end. 16[19, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30] sts.

Here's my progress pic, did anyone else's look so... mushroomy at the bottom?

No worries, mine looked kinda mushroomy too, it all works out in the end.


As for your question (to simplify I am doing the directions in the small size):

Next Row [Row 15 of Neckline Decrease Chart, RS]: Work 14[17, 17, 20, 23, 26, 29] sts in pattern, k2[2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1] and place these 16[19, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30] sts on hold for Right Front,

So, starting at the beginning of this row, you work the first Work 14 sts in pattern  aka row 15 of the neckline decrease chart, now, knit  k2,  if you count the stitches from your beginning of row marker you will find you now have 16 stitches done.    Move them to a stitch holder and ignore them for a bit  these stitches will be the right front panel. 
Continuing on...


 BO 6[6, 6, 6, 8, 8, 8] sts, work 38[44, 48, 50, 54, 60, 66] sts in pattern (39[45, 49, 51, 55, 61, 67] sts on right needle), working selvedge sts in stockinette st, and place these sts on st holder for Back,
Bind off your first 6 stitches (this is the start of the armpit), the next 38 stitches you follow the pattern, stop and count them, you should now have 39 stitches on your needle.  the selvedge stitches are the end stitches, you are working them in a plan old knit so its easier to add the sleeves later.  Ok now, take those 39 stitches, and stick them on a holder for now and ignore them, those 39 stitches are the back section)
, ok this next part is the remainder of the row! (almost done!)
BO 6[6, 6, 6, 8, 8, 8] sts, k1[1, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0] (2[2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1] sts on right needle), work in pattern to end. 16[19, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30] sts.
ok, Armpit time again, bind off 6 stitches, knit 1 ( you now have 2 stitches on your needle), using the neck decrease pattern row 15, work the remaining stitches.

CRAP i wish I had read this thread better before starting. I didn't know that charts in the round are different... no wonder my lower body doesn't look as good as the ones here.... do I frog?

Thanks for the help. I managed to figure this out last night except my count came out kind of weird. If I am supposed to bind off 6, what do I do with that last stitch on the right needle?
Also, it says to do the back "in pattern"... but which one!

ok, that last stitch on the right needle when you bound off six stays on the needle, thats how when it says work 15 stitches in pattern, you end up with 16 (15 from the pattern +1 from the series of bind offs= 16 stitches).

As for the back in pattern, I used the neck decrease chart, but only used the repeats shown in the bold section in the middle.

As for frogging, I never do I just plow on and try to make things work.  try it on now you have stitches on stitch holders and spread out, seriously try it on and see if you like how it looks, if you are horrified with how the bottom looks, frog it, if you like it or can live with it, continue.  I myself vote for continuing

I had my Cherie almost finished, fortunately, I tried it on that point and realized I didn't like the way it looked on me. It may just be a matter of going a size up.
