Need help with pattern
Hi all,
I'm new here, so not sure if I'm asking this in the right section...but here goes:

I have a question about a pattern Iím following. Iím trying to write it out in steps so I can follow, but Iím not sure Iím reading it right. Itís a baby sweater-Rowanís ďJust BabyĒ book, Norton pattern in case anyone has this.

Hereís the part Iím stuck on. Working on the back of the sweater, Iíve started shaping the raglan armholes.
Have done this one:
Next row (RS) K2, K2tog, K to last 4 sts, sl 1, K1, psso, K2

But hereís where Iím stuck and need a translation:
Working all raglan armhole decreases as set by last row, dec 1 st at each end of 4th and 2 foll 4th rows, then on foll 9 alt rows. [29] sts

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me!

Hi and welcome!
So if the decrease row you've just done is called row 1 then you would decrease on rows 5, 9, and 13. Then on the following 9 alternate rows (rows 15,17,19,,21etc). There'll be 29sts on the needle after the last decrease row.
