Shape sleeve topCast off 5 sets beginning next two rows. Dec 1 stitch at ea end of next 3 rows, then on 3 foll 4th rowsI get the first part but .... The last part ??? Pls help
Welcome to KnittingHelp!These kind of directions can be confusing. Decrease 1 stitch at each end of the next 3 rows (call them rows 1,2 and 3), then decrease on rows 7,11 and 15.
Omg! More confused than ever! Lol. How you get that out of that line I will never know! Then it goes on to say....then on 3 foll alt rows. So I was convinced it meant work 4 rows even then dec 1 stitch at ea end of next three rows!
Well it's says decrease at the ends of the next 3 rows so that rows 1,2,3. Then dec every 4th row, so work 3 rows even and dec on the 4th. Repeat that 3 times total. The alternate rows would just be every other row after that.
Thank you very very much. I have knit about 200 sweaters and I have never been confused by a pattern before but this one sure stumped me! And to make matters worst it says that this is a beginners pattern!
Sometimes there's just wording that takes many repeats to make sense. I've certainly had it happen to me, too. Good luck with the sweater!
