Hel with alt decrease

patterns

#1

Hi. I am trying to do the armholes for Scroll pattern of Rowan, but I am lost. The instruccion said for the Back Side: “Dec 1 st at each end of next 3 [5: 5: 7: 7] rows, then on foll 4 [4: 5: 5: 5] alt rows.” I have to start with 102 sts and finish with 88 sts: 14sts decrease. Is it the following instruccion right?

1, 2 and 3 row: I have to decrese at the end
7, 15, 23, 31, 39, 47 row: I have to decrese at the end
11, 19, 27, 35, 43 row: I have to decrese at the beg

Welcome to KH!

Decrease at each end of the row. That’s 2sts decreased per decrease row, one at the beginning and one at the end of the row.
For the smallest size, decrease on rows 1,2 and 3 and then on rows 5,7,9 and 11. That’ll be 14sts decreased.

Enjoy working the pattern and show a photo when you finish. We’d love to see your work!
