Help with Stylecraft Pattern No 8567

Hi, I’ve decided to start a new knitting project and am “stuck”.

I am knitting a from the stylecraft pattern no 8567 and would like some help with this section

Work 4 rows dec 1 st at armhole edge in every row AT SAME TIME dec 1 st at neck edge in next and every foll alt row.
51 sts

I am knitting the Left front so the armhole edge is at the beginning of a knit row and the neck edge will then be at the beginning of a purl row.

Any help will be much appreciated :aww:


If the next row is a RS row, call it row 1. Then you would dec on rows 1,2,3 and 4 (armhole edge). You could do a ssk or a p2tog tbl (purl 2 together through the back loop) depending on whether you’re on a knit or a purl row. Decrease at the end of rows 1,3,5, 7 (neck edge) until you get to 51sts. For this a k2tog works well.
