Hi I am struggling to follow this pattern - I have done the back of the cardigan and am now doing the left front.
I am knitting size 6-9 months which is the second size in the brackets.
I am at the part at the top of the page where I now have 29 stitches and I now come to the part where it says “working all raglan armhole decreases ....... and I am stuck trying to make sense of it. I have attached photos of that part of the pattern and also where it corresponds with the back. Can anyone tell me row by row what to do?

Thank you

left front armhole and neck edge decrease for raglan cardigan

Yes, it looks complicate as it is.
I am drawing a chart for you and you can see it better at;

Google doc

I hope I explain it well enough so that you understand.

Basically, for the size you're making the decreases are not too complicated. But you have to make sure that you decreases on both side at the right row.

Thank you for sharing your work and questioning.
Please give me a feedback if you can.
