Hi, I have started a pattern for v neck cardigan. I am at the stage i need to start shaping arm hole edge. I have to do this in pattern which i understand. I really must be stupid as i cant understand it. I need to know this in laymans terms.
next row Cast off 3 sts in pattern, pattern to end . 22 sts
next row purl.
I understand the above. Here is where i have the problem.
This is a left front side
- work 2 rows dec 1 st at armhole edge in every row At the same time dec 1 st at the front in the next and foll alt row 19 sts.
I understand that I have to dec 1 st at the end of armhole edge but does that mean that on line 2 I have to decrease 1 st at the armhole edge and also at the end of the second line to leave me with 19 sts.
I then have more instructions for following lines which i can ask later
Please i am knitting this for My Grand nephew who is due to be born in May.
