First time forum bod desperate for help with a pattern.
I'm knitting a romper suit for a little one and I'm stuck working the raglan decrease.
The pattern says:
Cont straight on the rem 55 sts.
Cast off 2sts at the beg of the 2 next rows, then dec as foll, 2sts in from the edge:
1 st 16 times every 2nd row. (This is the bit where I'm not sure what to do)
Once you have worked the last dec, work 1 row straight on the rem 19 sts and cast off all sts for neck.
So how do I lose the 32 stitches? The pattern is in stocking stitch. Do I dec 1 st at the beg of the knit row and then the beginning of the purl row, then do two rows?
I started dec on a knit row, did two rows then dec on the purl row but the piece was getting too big! I wasn't reducing the width quick enough!
So sorry for the long post, but if anyone could help me decode the pattern I'd really appreciate it.
