i am working on the child’s placket neck pullover and am having difficulty. instructions read for Yoke
deacrease rnd: *ssk, slip marker, k1, k2tog, knit to within 2 stitches of next marker; repeat from * 3 more times – 8 stitches decreased, 1 plain knit stitch between each set of paired decreases along raglan line. Knit 1 rnd even. Repeat the last two rounds 3 more times ending last round 28 stitches before end of round… yoke measures about 1.25 inches above joining
ok, so ive done only 1 full round of these instructions and it measures about an inch already. am i really supposed to repeat decreasing 8 stitches with a plain knit round 3 more times? or am i reading this incorrectly?
i posted the link to all of the instructions if you need a clearer idea of the work to try adn help me.
this is my first sweater.
