Decrease

I have 71 stitches on my needle. The decrease reads (RS) Cont in pattern (seed stitch), sl-s dec, *work next 11 sts, sdv dec; rep from* 3 times more, work next 11 sts sr-s dec. Do I do the first 11 sts using the sl- s dec, the 44 sts sdv dec, then 11 sts sr-s dec? That’s only adds up to 66 sts.

I have been thinking and looking at this over and over and I just don't get it. This doesn't make any sense to me at all. Everything doesn't add up right. I don't even understand what sdv dec and sr-s dec mean but hopefully there are instruction for them in the pattern.

Do you think you can contact the designer? I don't think I can be much of a help on this one. Maybe someone else can.

You could also try posting it in knittingparadise.com forum since there are many great knitters there.

Sincerely,

Ratcha

With MC, cast on 71 sts. Work in St st for 1". Cont in seed st until piece measures 4.5" from beg, end with a WS row. (This I get no problem).

Next row (RS) Cont in pat, sl-s dec; *work next 11 sts, sdv dec; rep from * 3 times more, work next 11 sts sr-s dec.

Next row (WS) Sl-s dec * work next 9 sts, sdv dec; rep from * 3 times more. Work next 9 its, sr-s dec. Working 2 sts less between decs on every row, cont dec over decs of previous row until there is 1 st left between decs.

That's a mystery to me too. Can you send me a copy of the pattern? I'll be happy to take a look at it.
