  1. I love this cardigan and am currently knitting it. I’ve hit a snag. Maybe someone can help me.

    I’m knitting the size 39, have just joined the sleeves and worked 1 WS row.  I’m ready to start the decreases.  Below the 2 row decrease instructions, it states for sizes 34.5, 39,43.5and 48 only and then gives instructions for a 4 row decrease that is to be repeated 3 times.

    My question is, do I knit the 4 row decrease instructions a total of 4 times and then knit the 2 row decrease pattern until I have the correct number of stitches?  

    If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Thanks
