Help with knitting instructions.

Hello everyone,

I have started a knitted v neckline vest and I need some help to understand the instructions.
The pattern says “Dec 1 st at neck edge of next and every foll 16 4th row, then 1 st on every foll 2 6th rows”.
Is it possible for someone to explain this to me?

Thank you very much for your help.

Every 4th row is counting on 4 rows from the previous decrease row so if you call “next row” row 1 (dec on row 1) then every 4th row is row 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29, 33, 37, 41, 45, 49, 53, 57, 61, 65. You will do the “every 4th” 16 times, ending row 65.
Then every 6th row twice, so if you continue counting rows then it will be rows 71 and 77.

Hope this helps. What is the pattern you are following?


Thank you very much I understand now. The pattern that I am following is the Mondrago from Mode at Rowan magazine.

Thank you very much for your help.

Maybe this one

Lovely slipover. I really like how slipovers look but I’m rubbish at wearing them, I’m always too cold!

If you have any more tricky bits, just ask.

Yeah, that is the pattern. Well, once I complete it, I was thinking of wearing it as in the picture for summer days.

Thank you very much for your help. If I have any more questions, I will just ask.
