Help please!


I need help with my cardigan, I’m stuck on the shoulders, could someone please help explain what this means? I’m doing the third size.

Shape Shoulder
Dec 1 st at beg of next and foll 2[3:5:3:4] alt rows,
then at same edge on foll 13[11:7:11:9] rows AND
AT SAME TIME dec 1 st at front slope edge of 7th
row. 15[18:21:21:24] sts.
Cast off 5[6:7:7:8] sts at beg of next and foll alt row.
Work 1 row.
Cast off rem 5[6:7:7:8] sts.

Thank you!

Dec1 st at beg next and foll 5 alt rows:
Rows 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 (row 7 also has dec on slope edge see below)
Dec 1 st same edge on foll 7 rows:
Rows 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19
AT SAME TIME dec 1st front slope of 7th row.

Cast off 7 sts beg of rows 20, 22
Work Row 23
Row 24 cast off rem stitches

Hope that makes sense

Row 18 should be included in the decreases of one stitch on the following 7 rows.
Dec one stitch on rows 1,3,5,7,9 and 11 then on row 18. Finally, cast off 7 sts on rows 19,21 and 23.
The decrease on the front slope is on row 7 as Creations noted.
