Hello! Finally registered to KH and I'm excited to be connected to this community of helpful knitters! To start off I am in the middle of a project that I am making for my baby niece. I found a great pattern for a baby hoody on Ravelry, but I am stuck on one part of the pattern where it is working on the front left side of the hoody. It says to decrease 1 at neck edge for next 3 rows and then every following alternating row until 11 stitches. Does this mean I decrease at the neck edge for 3 rows (WS and RS) and then only on the RS decrease until there are 11 stitches? Here is the pattern:
Neck shaping: Next row: Cast off 6 (6-7-7) sts. Purl to end of row. 16 (17-18-19) sts. Dec 1 st at neck edge on next 3 rows then every following alt row to 11 (12-12-13) sts.
Cont even until work from beg measures same length as Back to shoulders, ending with RS facing for next row. Cast off.

You fixed it, it's good. We all have to learn that. A link to a pattern is always a good idea. You can just copy/paste the URL to the pattern or Ravelry page into the message box. I'd love to see which pattern you're using, so if you'd please post the link I'd appreciate muchly.
I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
