# Raglan edge for yoke of cardigan ( help me š¢)

#1

Iām knitting a cardigan with the pattern āConfetti cardiganā from Paintbox yarns.
Iām starting to knit yoke, but I donāt understand the explanation saysā¦
I donāt know what I have to do after repeating row 1 and row 2 for 31 timesā¦

The explanation is as below.

Row 1 (rs) *K to within 2 sts of marker, sl 1, K1, psso, slip marker onto right needle, K2tog, rep from * 3 times more,
K to end. 355 sts.
Row 2 *P to within 2 sts of marker, P2tog, slip marker onto right needle, P2tog tbl, rep from * 3 times more, P to
end. 347 sts.
Working all raglan decreases as set by last 2 rows, dec 1 st at each raglan edge of both fronts and back on next
31 rows,
( I donāt get it from hereā¦)
then on foll 6 alt rows AND AT SAME TIME dec 1 st at each raglan edge of both sleeves on next 11 rows, then on foll 16 alt rows. 91sts.

After I repeat row1 and row2 on next 31 rows, there will be 99 stitches left ( if I understood well)

Maybe I canāt understand this part because English is not my mother tongue.
I wish there is anyone can help me with this.

Welcome to KH!
Itās not so obvious but the stitch counts help.
āWorking all raglan decreases as set by last 2 rows, dec 1 st at each raglan edge of both fronts and back on next 31 rows,ā
On these 31 rows, only decrease on the front and on the back. Thatās 4 decreases per decrease row (31 x 4 = 124)

āthen on foll 6 alt rowsā
Thatās 4 decreases per dec row (6 x 4 = 24)

"AND AT SAME TIME dec 1 st at each raglan edge of both sleeves on next 11 rows, "
Thatās a decrease on either side of the sleeves or 4 dec per dec row (11 x 4 = 44)

āthen on foll 16 alt rows.ā
Again 4 dec per dec row (16 x 4 = 64)
The total is 124+24+44+64=256
347-256=91sts.

Because of the āat the same timeā some of these rows overlap but the number of decreases is the same regardless.
