So you would continue doing row one, then row 2, following the diagonal raglan shoulder line. Does that make sense? You're basically stacking decreases on top of decreases. __________________ One of many knitting guys. CONGRATULATIONS TO AMY AND SHELDON ON THE BIRTH OF THEIR DAUGHTER! BradenCS on Ravelry

But you don't decrease on every row until you get to 25 sts.

"dec 1 st at each end of next 5 rows, then on every following alt row until 25 sts.remain"

So rpt R 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, then every other row you'll do a decrease until you're down to 25 sts. You'll probably be doing the RS row - row 1 for those every other rows.

Thank you contiknitter , suzeeq but i still have one question to make it clear.
So after decreasing these 5 next row, the next row(Ws-purl) i will purl without decreasing and the Rs row, i will decrease that why is written alt row. Does it make sense?
