Hi, I’m a beginner knitter and attempting to take on my first big project of knitting a cardigan, but I really need help in understanding the pattern. Here’s the instruction for knitting the back of the cardigan:
So, what I don’t get is the part about decreasing stitches. Am I supposed to decrease each side of only the 1st and 12th rows of the Irish Moss St Pat, repeat the same until I’m left with 75 stitches? And the next step, “cont even in pat until work from beg measures 19,” does it mean once I’ve decreased to 75 stitches, I should just knit the pattern without further decreasing stitches until I get the right length?
Any advice/comment would be appreciated!
