how do I shape the armhole?
(South Surrey, BC, Canada)
I'm working on the back of a sweater. I'm at the part where I shape the armholes. The instruction says: Dec 1 stitch each end of next and every following alt row 5 times more. 55 stitches.
Does it mean that I start off by decreasing 1 stitch at the end of a row. Then for the next row, I don't decrease at the end of it. But for the next row, I decrease at the end of it. If I do it this way, I only shape one armhole. I don't think that's supposed to occur. Please explain what the instruction mean.
