Working all raglan armhole decreases as set by last two rows dec 1 st at each end of next 3 rows then on following 9 alternate rows.

I don’t understand how I can do this decrease and maintain the raglan edge. My raglan decreases are:
First row K1, sl 1 k1 peso k to last 3 sets k2 tog k1
Second row: p1 p2tog p to last 3 sets program tbl, p1

You do not need to add any extra decrease to these row because they're already contain decreased stitches e.g. sl1,k1,psso and k2tog. All of the decreased rows that come after row 3 will be done the same way as 1st row (right side) since you'll only have to do it every alternate rows. "Working all raglan armhole decreases as set by last two rows dec 1 st at each end of next 3 rows then on following 9 alternate rows." For the direction above, you would start out by working the 1st row and the 2nd row as given above. These make 2 rows of decreases. Then do one more row exactly the same as 1st row. Now you've got 3 consecutively decreased rows. At this point, you would have done "dec 1st at each end of next 3 rows". Then you can move on to the next part. It says to decrease on following 9 alternate rows. So, you'll need to do decreases for 9 times on every other row. You then work rows 4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20 even without decrease. Work rows 5, 7, 9,11,13,15,17,19,21 exactly the same as 1st row and you'll get the raglan shape & decrease as per direction. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for visiting and question. Ratcha
