I'm getting back into knitting after a long hiatus & was hoping for some help with a baby's mock cable sweater.
To shape raglan arm holes instructions are as follows:
Cast off 2 sts at beg of next 2 rows (86 stitches). Dec at each end of next and foll alt rows until 44 sts remain.
My problem is with the decrease instruction - I've been decreasing one stitch at each end of the alternating rows, however I've realised that it'll take 42 rows to get to 44 sts if I do alternating rows & it doesn't seem right!! Should I be decreasing 2 sts at each end of the alternating row (so 4 sts each decrease row in total)?
Thanks in advance
