how do I the last 8 rows x 4
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Opinder,

This means to repeat the last 8 row four more times.

So, you did 4 rows of st st and then you dec on the 5th row. This was your first decrease. Then you worked 7 more rows. So your last 8th rows would be your 5th row and the next 7 rows. The instruction wants you to repeat the last 8 row, so this would be one dec row and 7 straight rows.

So, your work will be like this;

Next row : dec row
Work straight 7 rows

Next row : dec row
Work straight 7 rows

Next row : dec row
Work straight 7 rows

Next row : dec row
Work straight 7 rows

Next row : dec row
Work straight 7 rows

This would complete your 4 sets of decrease.

Thanks for sending in your question. Have a great day!

Ratcha
