HI! I am at the end finally of my hooded cardigan. I’m at the last rows of the hood but this sounds daunting. I think I can almost figure it out, but the decreases don’t seem to add up. Here’s what it says:

[FONT=Bookman Old Style][SIZE=2]Decrease Row: (RS) Decrease 1 st each side as follows: For Right Side of Hood, work across to last 3 sts, k2tog, work 1 st; for Left Side of Hood, work 1 st, ssk, work to end – 61 sts remain each side. Work 1 (WS) row. (got that part)

[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Bookman Old Style][/FONT]

[FONT=Bookman Old Style][SIZE=2]Repeat Decrease Row once, then at each center edge, BO 2 sts twice, 3 sts once, 4 sts once, and AT THE SAME TIME, at each outside edge, BO 7 sts twice, then 8 sts once. BO remaining 27 sts each side.[/SIZE][/FONT][SIZE=2]

[/SIZE]

It’s that part… bo 2 twice, 3 once 4 once at the same time doesn’t add up with bo 7 twice and 8 once.

Where do I begin my BO7? On the 2nd bo 2 twice?

Whew, is it time to get a headache yet?

And I assume I’m doing a wrong side each time just purling with no bindoffs… If you read all that and answer you are an angel.
