Need more information on knitting pattern

by Carole
(Québec, Canada)

Hi,

I'm French and I have an English pattern. I'm not sure how to do what is written, can you please explain more clearly what I have to do?

Cast off 2 stitches at beginning of next 2 rows.
Decrease 1 stitch at each end of next row and 3 following alternate rows - 46 stitches

and here's the other one I'm not sure:

Decrease 1 stitch at each end inside border of 6 stitches as before on next row and 3 following 10th rows - 73 stitches

Thanks a lot for your help

Carole

Hi Carole,

Thanks for submitting your question. I'll try my best to answer your questions.

Question 1: Cast off 2 stitches at beginning of next 2 rows.
Decrease 1 stitch at each end of next row and 3 following alternate rows - 46 stitches


Just for your understanding I will refer the first cast off row as row 1.

Row 1: Cast off 2 sts, work to the end.

Row 2: Cast off 2 sts, work to the end.

Row 3: SKP (slip,knit,passover) work to the last 2 sts, k2tog.

Row 4: Work as established pattern. Do not need to decrease.

Repeat row 3 and 4 three more times. And you should have 46 sts. left.


Question 2:: Decrease 1 stitch at each end inside border of 6 stitches as before on next row and 3 following 10th rows - 73 stitches

I'll call this "decreasing row".

Decreasing row: Work the 6 sts border as before, SKP (decreasing), work to the last 8 sts, k2tog, work the border.

You will need to do this decreasing row every 10th row for 3 more times. It will be on the right side every time.

I hope this helps. Good luck with your project. Let me know if you need more help.
