Here is how the pattern reads: Row 1 and all WS rows : Purl Row 2 K2, p1, k to last 3 sts, p1, k2 Row 4 (dec) K2, p1, k1, ssk, k to last 6 sts, k2tog, k1, p1, k2. Working in pat as established, rep dec row every 8th row 5(0,0,0,0,0) times, every 6th row 0 (3,0,0,0,0) times, every 4th row 0(6,10,9,7,3) times, every other row 0(0,2,6,11,19) times - 46(46,48,48,50,50) sts. The underlined portion is where I have my question: Since I am making the second size (bolded) I know I don't do any decreases for the every 8th row so I skip to do the every 6th row 3 times. So will my next dec row after row 4 be row 6 or row 10? So this is what I have done so far: Row1 - Purl Row2 - as pattern states above Row3 - purl Row4 - as patterns states above (dec) Row5 - purl Row6 - do i decrease or follow the row 2 instruction above? Thank you for your help - I found a couple threads on this that gave 2 different answers and were from years ago. One said your next decrease would be row 6 the other said row 10? Confused..... I am thinking my next decrease row will be row 10, 16 and 22 then starting the every 4th row would be row 26, 30, 34, etc. Am I right?
