Decrease question again

I know I asked this below, but I want to make sure…

Starting with 60 stitches

Dec one at end of each of the next and 3 foll alt rows, 52 st.

To me, 3 foll alt rows sound like at the end of every sixth row (every other third row). It’s in stockinette. So would it be

K - dec row 59 st
P
K
P
K
P - dec row 58 st
K
P
K
P
K - dec row 57 st, etc…
P

I read following alternate rows to be every other row.

So if you call the first decrease row 1, then you would decrease on

rows 1, 3, 5, 7

So it won’t be lopsided if I only decrease on the knit sides only?

And I’ll have to decrease more than 3 alt rows to get down to 52 stitches too, right?

You’re decreasing at each end–twice per row.

Total decreases for the first and the following 3 rows would be 8.

:oops: :doh:

I see it now! LOL Thanks…

off to :frog: but just one row thankfully!
