OK - so I'm begining to shape the shoulder but the pattern is very complex and I'd like some assistance trying to figure out what to do please. So, here's the pattern verbatim:
Dec one st at armhole edge in every row 5 times, then in every full atl row 3 times. AT SAME TIME dec one st at front edge in next row, then in every foll atl row 1 time, then in every foll 4th row until 24 sts rem.
I'm sorry - but I just don't understand this.
