Shaping arm hole
by: Ratchadawan

I will explain each set sapperately. Please read first before start working.

Cast off 2 sts at beg of next 2 rows 73 sts
- This one is simple, just cast off 2 sts at the beginning of the next 2 rows. 73 sts total after BO.

Next row (rs): K2, K2tog, k to last 4 sts, sl 1, K1, psso, k2. 71 sts
Last row sets the decreases.
- This is the right side row. It tells you how to work the decreases at the beginning and the end of the row. You will work decreases using the same method mentioned above using k2, k2tog, k to last 4sts and sl1,k1,psso,k2. This is count as your 1st dec row.

Working decreases as set, dec 1 st at each end of 2nd and foll 3 alt rows. 63 sts.
- This one means you work decrease on each end of the 2nd row (which is your next right side row. Then work dec on each end of the following alternate rows (which is every other rows 3 times).
Or to put it in a simple sentence is to work decrease at each end of every other rows 4 times. So your dec rows should only be on the right side. When you count your total sts at the last dec row, you should end up with 63 sts.


Best to you,
