I’m really struggling to make sense of this instruction.
Shape sleeve top
Work 4 [4:6:6:6] rows dec 1 st at each end of the next and every foll alt row. 35 [41:43:47:51] sts.
I am knitting the third size and already have 53 sts on my needles. I’ve double checked that this is correct. If I knit six rows decreasing on alternate rows that will only decrease to 47 stitches. Am I supposed to knit six rows and then begin the decreasing?
I’d appreciate advice anyone can give. Thanks
