Hello: I hope someone can help me with this pattern. I have worked the 15 rows in St.St. But, I am having trouble understanding rep the last 16 rows 8 times more, then the dec row once again to go to 125 stitches from 145. am i decreasing in all of the 16 rows? Any help would be appreciated. I copied and pasted the beginning of the pattern. If you cannot see it please let me know and I will try something else. Thanks, LESLIE

sorry, I could not figure out how to show this pattern. This is a long cardigan. So, this is what my problem is: Back: cast on 145 st. 1st 6 rows are rib stitch. after rib: begin with a knit row, 18 rows in st.st.. Next, dec row K8, ssk, k to last 10 sts., k2tog, k8. Work 15 rows in st.st. Until here I am FINE! This is what I don't understand: Rep the last 16 rows 8 times more, then the dec row once again. to 125 sts. I am confused about the decrease. In the 16 rows, 8 more times, do I do a decrease in each row? SO CONFUSED. PLEASE HELP

Back: cast on 145 st.
1st 6 rows are rib stitch. after rib: begin with a knit row,
18 rows in st.st..

Next, dec row
K8, ssk, k to last 10 sts., k2tog, k8.
Work 15 rows in st.st.
Until here I am FINE! This is what I don't understand:
Rep the last 16 rows 8 times more,
then the dec row once again. to 125 sts. =

Decreasing section
Row 1: K8, ssk, k to last 10 sts., k2tog, k8.

(Now work 16 rows in st st)
Rows 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16: Purl
Rows 3,5,7,9,11,13,15: Knit

(now work those knit and purl stockinette stitch rows 8 more times).

Think of it as a 16-row pattern (1 decrease + 15 stockinette) that you do a total of 9 times, then you do one final decrease row to get to 125 st.

thank you, you are a life saver! one more question: i have 145 stitches, the first decrease I do is: k8, ssk, k to last 10 stitches, k2tog, k8. is it correct that after I do this decrease I should have 143 stitches? When I continue with all of the rest of the decreases as you told me to do, wouldn't I have 123 st and not 125? am I missing something? thanks so much for this help! Leslie

I want to add my appreciation of the help you have given. I only joined KP recently and I'm amazed at the time people take to help others. It's the kind of help that we give each other on Knit-a-square, but that I've rarely found on other sites.
