Raglan decrease

I am making the Buckler turtleneck by Martin Storey and am confused by the instructions to complete the decreases on the back. It states “Dec 1 st at each end of 3rd and 17 foll 4th rows, then on foll 14 alt rows.” The alt rows is self explanatory but I’m having trouble with the 3rd and 17 following 4th rows. It makes no sense to me. Help.

Welcome to the forum!


The decreases would be on row 3 and then rows 7,11,15,19,23,27,31,35,29 and so on up to 17 of these decrease rows. Then dec on the alternate rows for 14 rows.

Thank you sooooo much! That’s sort of what I started doing sort should be okay. Thanks again!
