In order for your stitch count to remain correct and your pattern to line up, it’s vital that you shape armholes and neck staying in pattern. If you don’t have enough stitches for two decreases and a double yarn over, you can use a single yarn over and single dec, or just knit the extra stitches.
Use visual cues to find where to start in the lace. The double yarn overs stagger and the k2tog, with the exception of the first one in row 1 is always made up for a YO followed by a knit stitch
If you have trouble seeing the short row wraps to hide them, try using stitch markers after each wrap.
