Hi Gioia and welcome to the wonderful art of knitting! So this pattern is just telling you to do all your side seam decreases as stated which is: k6, sl 1, k1, psso, k to last 8 sts, k2tog,k6.

Then it tells you to dec 1 st at each end of 6th and every foll 6th row until 89 which means that you will work that decrease row (which decreases one stitch at each end of the row) for the 6th row and every following 6th row until there are 89 stitches left on the needle.

It might be helpful for you to write this out, something like this:

1
2
3
4
5
6 decrease (97)
7
8
9
10
11
12 decrease (95)

and so on, which will tell you when to work the decrease row and how many stitches you should have after each decrease row. You would just cross off each row as you finish it, so you will always know what row of the pattern you are on.

I wrote a post a while ago on keeping track of increase or decrease rows for knitting or crocheting. You can find it here: http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2009/...e-rows-in.html You might find it helpful to read through it and then come up with a method of marking your rows off so you can more easily keep track of them.

I hope this helps!

BTW, what are you making?
