So this is the shaping for the waist? I should probably just sit quietly now...

Okay, so maybe you do begin the decs on the 12th row after 3" then. When you do the incs, are you supposed to have the same stitch number? If so, are there 4 or 5 increase rows?

You only want 4 decrease rows total. Since the instructions say every 12th row, count 12 rows from the 3.5inch mark, decrease and then begin the series of 3 decrease rows spaced every 10th. The directions aren't as specific as they could be but you could see if this spaces out the decreases and increases so that they fall where you would like them on the sweater.

I think just through discussing it with all of you, I have figured out what to do. Based on the stitch count before and after the decreases, I think I have to work 12 rows and then decrease. It's the only thing that makes sense to me, even though it is not like a standard set of instructions. LOL.

Thank you all for your help with this. Sometimes it helps just to talk it through, and other people's idea get me thinking it through more clearly. Thanks again!

Great! Post a photo of the finished sweater if you'd like. We'd love to see it.
