Pattern question
I'm knitting the Plain Vanilla pullover from Knit Picks and in shaping the arm hole I come across this:

p1, p2tog tbl, p to last 3 sts, p2tog, p1, rep this dec every other row 4.

The first part I get, and what I think the other part means is that I do the decrease 8 rows after the first decrease, does this sound right?

No it sounds odd, for an armhole. it makes the dec's too far apart.
:??Perhaps it is a pattern error?? and should be
"rep this dec every other row 4 times".

I will often compare the armhole shaping instructions for front and back, as they usually are the same. (ignoring neck part) a pattern error may become clear that way?

It looks like a pretty straight seam, so maybe every 8 rows is correct. :think: Check the stitch counts from where you start the decreases to where the shoulder stitches are. That should guide you, as well as checking the directions for the front.

hehe, looking back through the pattern after you said something, I realized I misread the pattern, but I'm glad I didn't work on it anymore until I had the answer to my question, thanks for the input.:muah:
