It says " dec 1 st each end of next and every following 6th row 1 time?" Also says " dec 1 st each end of every following 6th row from previuos dec 4 times more? ". I would end with 55 stitches from 63

"dec 1 st each end of every following 6th row from previuos dec 4 times more. " I would end with 55 stitches from 63 [quote] Does the second instruction immediately follow the first one? The first line gives you a decrease of 2 stitches, the second line gives you a decrease of 4 stitches; the total of the number of decreases would be 6, and if you have 63 stitches when you begin the decrease you will end up with 57 stitches. That said, these instructions are confusing to me. Do you have a link to the pattern?

" dec 1 st each end of next and every following 6th row 1 time?" " dec 1 st each end of every following 6th row from previuos dec 4 times more? ". If we call the next row, row 1, decrease at each end of row 1, 7, 13, 19, 25, and 31. It's a total decrease of 12sts. Does that match up with your pattern total stitch numbers? Perhaps the decrease of 8 applies to the second direction (the "4 times more")? __________________ Knitting Help Videos Here!-

I do not have the ability to put the link on here. The next instruction after the first decrease says to work 3 rows even and then I am working two rows of the bunny picture and then the second decrease 4 times? Am I st st 6 rows and then decreasing on the 7th and then working 3 rows even?

Then it says the 2nd dec instructions. You said about decreasing 4, so am I taking off 4 off row 1 and 6?

The decreases fall on rows 1, 7, 13, 19, 25, and 31. It works out this way: 67sts row 1 dec row 7 dec (63sts) rows 8, 9, 10 work even these 3 rows (no dec) rows 11 and 12 bunny picture (no dec) row 13 dec rows 14-18 no dec row 19 dec and continue with working even between the dec rows ending with 55sts. __________________ Knitting Help Videos Here!-

When you begin the row you will: K3, YO, K5, SSK, K2 tog, K5 Then you will repeat this pattern: (YO, K2, YO, K5, SSK, K2 tog, K5) multiple times. When you have 3 sts left on the end of the row: YO, K3 Every other row will be a right side row, in this pattern, your even rows are the odd-numbered rows. The right side is the side that looks best when facing up.
