Hi Kola,

"Shape raglan armholes

These next 2 rows, you cast of 3 sts at the beginning of the rows. Keeping pattern correct is just to keep working the pattern that you've been working on, e.g. stockinette, garter or cable, ect. You should have 64 sts when completing these 2 rows.


"Next row (RS): K1, sl 1, K1, psso, patt to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1."

This next row is a typical raglan decrease row. Work this row as directed. All your decrease rows will be working in this manner and always on the right side rows. Work even without decreasing on the wrong side rows.

"Working all raglan armhole decreases as set by last row, dec 1 st at each end of 4th foll 4th row,then on every foll alt row until 30 sts rem. Work 1 row, ending with RS facing for next row.

Now, this is getting tricky. Now, you'll need to decrease 1 sts at each end of every 4th row 4 times. Let's say, your last row is the 1st row and it is a set row. Then your work will look like this;
1st row (set row): Dec at each end as directed above
2nd-4th row: work even.
5th row: is your first following 4th row dec.
6th-8th row: work even.
9th row: is your second following 4th row dec.
10th-12th: work even
13th: is your third following 4th row dec.
14th-16th: work even.
17th row : is your forth following 4th row dec and it's the last dec of every 4th row.

Next decrease section will be done on every following alternative row or every other row.
So, you'll work decrease on row 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29 and so forth until you have only 30 sts remain on the needle. Then work one wrong side row.


I hope this makes sense to you. Just take one row at a time. I know you can do it!

Thanks for visiting and questioning. Take care.
