I’m having a little trouble understanding this decreasing tip for my sweater I’m working on.
This is the instruction:
Work 1 st as in diagram, work 2 sts tog, pass over the first st on needle = 2 dec sts.
Dec as follows in the different diagrams
M.1 (= 44-44-52-52-52-52-52 sts): 10-10-12-12-12-12-12 sts.
M.3 (= 8 sts): 2 sts.
M.4 (= 10 sts): 3 sts.
M.5 (= 16 sts): 6 sts.
It is for the back of the sweater to cast off before the collar
= 118-124-132-142-160-168-178 sts. Continue back and forth on circular needle. Cast off to shape the armhole each side at beg of every row: 2 sts 2-2-2-2-2-3-4 times and 1 st 1-1-2-3-4-4-5 times = 108-114-120-128-144-148-152 sts. Continue in pattern. When piece measures 49-59-61-63-65-67-69 cm (adjust so that next row is row 7 in diagram M.1, M.3 and M.4) cast off, AT THE SAME TIME dec 24-24-26-26-36-36-36 sts in diagram on casting off row – see DECREASING TIP!
And when it says do one stitch as in diagram does that mean to do the cable stitch? And if so how do I do that.
I will post a link below of the pattern which includes the pattern diagrams.
