Direction clarification.
I am knitting from Fashion-Plus Knits by Leisure Arts. Its Bess' V-Neck Lace Pullove if anyone has the book. The pattern has 5 sizes, I am making the 3rd size in a #[A, B, C, D] Im making the B size

I just split the neck line and am working back to the split.

Here are the insturctions and what I think it means (im guessing Im wrong) anyone have any other perspective.

Instructions:

Working both sides at the same time, dec 1 st at each neck edge {every 2nd row, then every 4th row] 4 times (dec 8 sts each side), then every 2nd row 5 times. At the same time...blah blah (talks about the arm holes.


What I think it means, for my size, maybe.

I split with at 2tog ssk on the knit row. so id purl this entire row, the knit the next, and each knit row (every 2nd) until the 8 decreases are completed.

Im confused by the info in the []. Becuase every 2nd and every 4tn would just be the calling for the same rows...no?

Help.

Would it mean this

Knit 1st
Purl
Knit 2nd w/decrease
purl
knit1row
purk
knit2row
purl
knit3row
purl
knit4row with decrease

Then repeat this 4 times. You would still have 8 decrease.

I'm not an expert, but it's a guess.
You know who would know....that's Ingrid. You could private message her and ask if she doesn't catch this post in a day or so.

That's what I get, too. Decrease on the second row, and then every 4th row until you get to 8 decreases. Then you dec every knit row for the next set of decreases.

Okay...I have a question...

If its as you say...

why are the purl rows not counted in the 4th? It says every 4th row, not ever 4th K row.

I think you're right. Decrease on the second row and then on every 4th row--you should still count the p rows.

K the split row
p
k dec
p
k
p
k dec
p
k
p
k dec and every 4th row until you get to 8.

Sorry!!
