Someone please explain this pattern step by step to me
Cast off 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows… (55 sts)
Next row: k1, sl1, k1, psso, knit to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
Dec one st (as in previous row) at each end of every foll 4th row until 41 sts rem, then in every foll alt row until 27 sts remain
Work 1 row
I’m to follow the above pattern to shape armholes. Can someone please help me make sense of this as this is my first cardigan and I’m a bit confused!
For reference I have so far knitted stockinette up until this point.
Where it says cast off 4 sts at beginning of next two rows, am I to continue stockinette throughout these two rows, or am I now following the pattern where it says ‘next row’? (K1, s1, k1, psso, knit to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1)?
And then the instructions after that I need someone to break that down further for me.
Thank you in advance!
