Help please! T_T (Clean Line Cardigan)

Hi! My name is Dayana. :slight_smile:
First , sorry for my English, I’m brazilian. I am study English and also knitting.
I’m trying to knit my first cardigan, but I have a doubt :???:

But I can’t understand this part (FRONT): size 2XL
[B]Row 1 (RS):[/B] Work in Seed st to last 2 sts, k2tog – 59 (69, 79) sts.
[B]Rows 2-8[/B]: Work even, without increasing or decreasing, in Seed st.
Rep Rows 1-8 until 40 (50, 60) sts rem, then rep Rows 1-4 – 41 (51, 61) sts when all decreases have been completed

would look like this ?
repeat 1-8 one time, repeat 1-4 one time, repeat 1-8 one time, repeat 1-4 one time… and so on?
I don’t understand =(

Can anyone help me ?
Thanks! ^^

Welcome to Knitting Help. Your English is great already, I’m sure you’ll only improve even more! :thumbsup:

Link to pattern

Work Row 1, the decrease row
Work 7 rows in seed stitch with no decreases
Work Row 1 again
Work 7 rows in seed stitch
and back to Row 1 followed by 7 rows of seed stitch

Continue this way until you have decreased to the correct number of stitches.

I’m trying to figure out now which are the rows 1-4.

Since this is to be seamed you might choose to move your decrease in one stitch from the edge and knit the edge stitch on the right side and purl it on the wrong side. This makes seaming easier and it will look nicer too.

I hope this helps. If what I wrote doesn’t make sense, please say so. Someone else will be able to explain it differently.

I found rows 1-4. Of course they are right where they should be.

Shape Armhole and Neck
Row 1 (RS): Bind off 4 (6, 8) sts, work in Seed st to end of row – 37 (45, 53) sts.
Row 2 and All Even Rows: Work in Seed st.
Row 3: Bind off 2 (4, 6) sts, work in Seed st to end of row – 35 (41, 47) sts.

After repeating rows 1-8 to the correct number of stitches, then work rows 1-4 to shape the armhole and neck, repeating them until the correct number of stitches remains.

I’m sorry it took me so long to see these lines.

Thanks GrumpyGramma, You helped me a lot ! -
I understood almost everything.

Please, I decrease until 60 or 61 stitchs?
I 'm confused about it: [B]"… then rep Rows 1-4 – 41 (51, 61) sts when all decreases have been completed"[/B]
When should I repeat the row 1-4?

Assuming you’re doing the largest size, you need to have 61 sts.
When you have 61 sts continue to Row 1 and bind off 8 sts, leaving 53 sts.
Work Row 2 in seed stitch
At Row 3, bind off 6 sts and you’ll have 47 sts remaining.

[B]Shape Armhole and Neck
Row 1 (RS): Bind off 4 (6, 8) sts, work in Seed st to end of row – 37 (45, 53) sts.
Row 2 and All Even Rows: Work in Seed st.
Row 3: Bind off 2 (4, 6) sts, work in Seed st to end of row – 35 (41, 47) sts.[/B]

Thanks!! I understood ^^
