Hi all! I’m not new to knitting, but I am new to knitting off of patterns. I’ve mostly just stuck to hats, scarves and blankets for the last 15 years. I have this pattern that I am approximately 20" into, for a Men’s Cardigan. I saw some in an Irish shop for several hundred $$ and thought I could make one for myself for cheaper. Well, now I’m stuck because I can’t seem to interpret the pattern. This is the step I’m stuck at:
Shape Neck: At right edge, every 4 rows, decrease 1 st (14 times). When piece measures 19 3/4" (20 1/2"-21 1/4") from beg.
Then it’s the next step. My struggle is that my piece is 47 rows (2 longer than it should be), but if I decrease 1 st every 4 rows, 14 times, I would need at least 56 rows, if not 60. But if I’m reading this wrong and I’m supposed to go down instead of across, that is way more than 1 1/4"…
