Raglan decreases and neck shaping question
Hello all!

I need some help deciphering a pattern. I am knitting a dress and am at the decreasing for raglan portion. I have just cast off stitches for the neck band and the following instructions are confusing:

Continue working raglan dec and dec at the neckline edge on alt rows further 3 sts once and 2 sts once.

Does this mean that after I do the regular decreases for the raglan (at three stitches before the sleeve marker, knit two through the back loop, knit two, knit two together), do I decrease three more stitches at each neck edge on one row, knit one row, then decrease two more stitches at each neck edge?

Thank you!

Pretty much yes. You dec at the neck edge on every other row, that's what 'alt rows' means.

You keep doing the raglan decreases at the same time/along with the neck decreases.
