Raglan/Neck decrease

Hi, thanks for offering this helpful forum! I am working on a baby sweater Sirdar4530 and am confused about how to carry out the following instruction, the underlined part is what confuses me most.

Work 25 rows dec 1 st at raglan edge in next and every foll alt row AT SAME TIME dec 1 st at neck edge in 3rd and following 4th row. 2 sts. [Note- you start with 21 stitches].

Grateful for any help or advice ! :smile_cat:

Welcome to the forum!
Are you working on one of the fronts? I’m assuming that it’s a cardigan front. Let us know if it’s the back instead.


I didn’t see the underlining but the decreases are on every odd number row. Call the next row, row 1. Decrease at the raglan edge on rows 1,3,5,7,9,11 etc up to row 33. Decrease at the neck edge on rows 3 and 7. This will leave you with 2sts.

Thanks! :sunny:
