I was doing fine with my jacquard sweater and using a chart for the first time.
Then came the dec for the armholes.
The pattern is a six stitch repeat. How do I decrease and keep to the pattern on the chart? The dec is the k2 tog...... s1kpsso type so that is the easy bit so I lose 2 sts every other row..
Luckily I thought to do a practice run!!!!!
Can anyone advise me?

Since you have a chart it's a lot easier than without. Since you're losing the stitch on both end, just start and end 1 st in from the chart as you make each dec.
