What does this mean??

Hi, I have started a knitting pattern for a cardigan for my daughter. I’m not new to knitting but my experience with patterns is very limited.

I’ve got 74 stitches in my row. It’s knit only.

It says decrease 1 stitch at both ends of the 5th and 4 following 18th rows then on following 0 row. 64 stitches.


Welcome to KH!
Decrease 1 stitch at each end of rows 5, 23, 41, 59 and 77. That’s it. That’ll take the stitch count from 74 to 64sts. Remember to decrease at each end, that’s 2 decreases per decrease row.

Whenever there’s a 0 (or - or x) for your size, skip over that direction and go immediately on to the next direction.
