Thank you for that pointer. Well here we go with info on pattern:
the daisy stitch pattern used is over 4 rows
1st row (right side) k
2nd row k1, (p3yo3, k1) end
3rd row k.
4th row k1,p1,k1 (p3yo3,k1) to last 2 sts. p1,k1
I am now decreasing for the sleeves as follows:
I have 49 sts and have finished patterning 19 rows
Cast off 2 sts at beg of next 2 rows (65) sts.
Dec row (right side) s2kpo, k to last 3 sts, s2kpo.
Dec in this way at each end of next 8 right side rows.
Patt 1 row
What is happening when I am decreasing is that I am changing the pattern, so I am guessing I need to start the rows differently? Hope that is clear enough for you to help!
