View Full Version : help translating pattern

08-16-2007, 02:00 PM
Hello all! I'm a newbie and I need some help understanding a pattern. The section I don't understand reads:

"Change to larger needles and beg with a knit row, work 4 rows in stocking st.
Dec 1 st each end of next and following 6th rows twice more. 75 sts."

I got the first sentence and completed 4 rows. I also understand that I should now decrease one stitch at the beginning and end of the next row. It's the "following 6th rows twice more" part I don't understand!

Any and all help is appreciated!

Decrease on the 6th row after the dec row, then the 6th row after that. Following means `after' and patterns will say `4th, 6th, 10th' rows. Twice more means do the dec row 2 more times after the first one.
