Pattern question
Hello, I am knitting a cardy for my daughter and am having difficulty understanding the pattern so any help is greatly appreciated!
My pattern gives me instructions for the first 8 rows then says:
From 1st to 8th row sets slip st rib and cable panel.
Keeping continuity of slip st rib and cable panel as set (throughout) work 21 rows dec 1 st at each end of 5th and every foll 8th row.

My question is how do I know what stitches to knit for the next 21 rows? Do I repeat the last 2 rows? If so it's going to get very complicated with the decreases.

I'm a bit of a novice so I hope I haven't been to ambitious with my pattern choice!

Thank you in advance
Elinor
