Hi this is the pattern I’m reading
Rs, cast of 5 sts k until there are 8 sts on right needle, turn and leave rem sts on a holder.
Next row cast off 3 sts, p to end
Cast off rem 5 sts
With rs facing rejoin yarn to rem sts cast off centre 15 sts
K to end
Complete to mate first side reversing
Any advise would be appreciated just getting myself in a muddle
