This pattern is confusing me. It looks like they are telling me to decrease in 2 different places. I have the body which is in one piece, and then I add the sleeves to the circ needle with markers on both sides of the sleeves, so I can only decrease at either side of the sleeve. Why does it say to decrease on each side at front and back?
Raglan shaping: Dec 1 st each side of each marker – see knitting tips above.
Dec at each side on front and back every 4 rows 3-0-0-0-0 times, every other row 9-15-15-14-13 times and then every row 0-0-0-4-8 times.
Dec at each side on the sleeve every other row 11-12-14-12-14 times and then every row 6-5-3-8-6 times.
After last dec 48-48-50-54-56 sts remain on needles. Knit 3 rows stockinette st, then bind off loosely.
