Raglan & neck shaping

Hi please can someone advise me whether I have gone wrong as my pattern says 'dec 1 st at raglan edge of next and following 13 alt rows and at the same time dec 1 St at neck edge on 5th and every following 8th row. 2 sts’
I only have 13 stitches left so can’t see how this is right? Thanks

Do you know how many stitches you should have? How many did you have before beginning the decreases? A link to your pattern if possible would be helpful.


At the start of raglan shaping I had to cast off 2 stitches and beg of next row which left me 21 stitches,

It then said ‘work 1 row’

Shape neck
R side k1 sl1 k1 paso knit to last 2 stitches k2tog
Working all decreases as given for back continue as follows
Work 3 rows
(Back decreases were as follows: k1 sl1 k1 psso k to last 3 k2 tog k1
The pattern is Peter Pan P1204
Thanks for responding so quick

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
Cast off at the raglan edge on rows 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21, 23,25,27. Cast off at the neck edge on rows 5,13, and 21. That should leave you with 21-17sts=4sts remaining.
Does that make sense with the following directions?
