I need some help! I am knitting a jacket/cardigan, its my first ever attempt at knitting something other than a scarf. It has a ribbed collar with an "i-cord" tie. It has ribbing at the bottom and the rest of it is in stocking st. I have successfully completed the back (I think!) and am now knitting the left front. I have completed the first bit but now the pattern is saying:
Beg Neck Shaping:
Decrease one st at end (neck edge) and foll 6th rows until 47 st remain.
Work 5 rows
I have 49 stiches, so my question is does this mean that I decrease one st on the side that is closest to my neck and then knit 6 rows and decrease another stitch and then knit another 6 rows and then decrease another stitch and then knit 5 rows?
Anyhelp would be appreciated
