My pattern tells me to decrease 3sts at the beginning on the following 4 rows
do this mean every other or every row i am shaping the sleeve top.
yours margaret

Often the top of the sleeve cap decreases rapidly in this way. It’s usually a bind off of 3sts at the beginning of the row, work to the end, turn, bind off 3 sts work to the end and then repeat the process on the next 2 rows.
What pattern are you following? Can you give us a pattern name?

Thank you for reply. I am sending the I want pattern has asked me to do.
