When working decreases at the neckline and armhole edges, if there are not enough stitches to work a cable, work those stitches in stockinette.
The edge stitches are worked in garter stitch (knit every row).
Instructions are given for the smallest size with larger in parenthesis. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.
