Hi, and thank you in advance for your help!! I do not understand this wording, and do not know what to do next:
I am making a vest from Lion Brand Patterns.
Back: Cast on 94(done). Work 7 rows in Garter st(k every row)(done). Continue in St st only, keeping 4 st Garter st border on each side for side slits.( I get this, how many St st rows?)
Next row:(WS) K4(garter st) P to last 4 sts, K4 (garter st)(is this the next row after the 7 garter st rows?)
Next row: (RS) Slip 1 st k to end Work even until 40 rows have been completed.(work even, does this mean I alternate these 2 rows??)
Dec Row: (RS) K1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, ssk, k1. Rep dec row every 20th row 3 more times-86 sts. Work even until piece measures 20" from beginning, ending with a WS row.
Do I alternate the 2 next rows?? Where does the decrease row come in?? I am sorry for so many questions, and you can see, I am completely confused. Thanks!!
