Hello! I’m having trouble with my first attempt to make a sweater.
I am knitting the back side, size M, and this part I don’t get:
Shape raglans: Cast off 2 (2-3- 3-4-4) sts at beg of next 2 rows. 81 (89-95-105-117-135) sts.
Starting with 93 stitches, I have to end up with 89, after 2 rows.
Cast off 2 sts means that I knit 1 st, then I knit the second st, and I slip the first one on top of the second, and the I continue knitting? Or that means casting off just 1 st? So I should do it again one more time and that equals casting off 2 sts?
I also don’t get why would I do that only at the beginning and not at the end as well of each row, to make it even.
I hope you can help me, I am stuck at this point of the pattern
