This pattern, Simple Knit Cowl Neck Sweater, has a missing paragraph or sentence. For the sleeves, it has missed out saying, after decreasing, what to do before the shoulder shaping. I'm stuck! Can't rate it yet!

Work even to approx 18 inches from the beg end with a wrong side row. This information is stuck on the end of the inc row instructions, it could easily be missed, I'd have missed it if I wasn't looking for it. Hope this helps, happy knitting.
