Hi there, I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me read my pattern.
I’m currently decreasing a stocking stitch part of the pattern for an armhole and front slope of a cardigan.
The pattern starts here on RS (armhole edge) (a knit row) and reads:
“dec 1 st at armhole edge of next 5 rows then on foll 6 alt rows [B]and at the same time[/B] dec 1 st at front slope edge on next and every foll alt row. 36” (emphasis in the pattern)
I really can’t quite work out what I am supposed to do here.
“Armhole edge of next 5 rows” - Does this mean 5 armhole side rows? Or just the three rs rows out of the total 5?
Do I decrease every row of ws (front slope side)?
It seems to me that I should decrease at the start of every row, but if that were the case, then the instructions wouldn’t be written like this.
