Sirdar Jewelspun Jumper design 10140 - Raglan sleeve instruction

by Jo
(Hereford)

Hello - Just starting the raglan shaping.

Pattern is
Row 1 (K1 P1) 3 times, s1,k1, psso, knit to last 8 sts, k2tog (p1 k1) 3 times
Row 2 (P1 k1) 3 times p2 tog, purl to last 8 sts, p2togbl, (k1 p1) 3 times.
1st and 2nd rows set rib edges and raglan shaping.
It’s the next instruction which is confusing me!
Work 6 rows dec 1 st at each end as before in every row.

Question - do I decrease the first stitch and then( k1,p1, k1, p1, k1, p1) or do I decrease the first sts and (p1,k1,p1,k1,p1)? I’m not really sure what they mean by ‘before” either?

Thanks for your help :)

Hi Jo,

For the next 6 rows, you will repeat row 1 and 2. These two rows are set up rows and there are already have decreases in them. Just keep doing row 1,2,1,2,1,2 and then continue with the rest of the pattern. You started out with 94 sts and ended up with 94-12 = 82 sts, just like the pattern states.

Thank you for the question and visiting. Have fun knitting!
