Ok, Im sure this is all very logical and Im just not seeing it but...

Im working on this pattern:
http://www.chicknits.com/boat.html

Its coming along pretty well but Im having an armhole issue. Before the armhole shaping you end with 99 sts. Then "Armhole Shaping: Bind Off 5 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows.

DEC 1 stitch at each end of next 7 rows.

DEC 1 stitch at each end of every other row 7 times. (61 sts remain)"

Is my math off or does that not come out right?

Sorry this is scattered, Im sneaking the post at work

sounds right
99-(5*2) = 89  (5 on each end)
89-(7*1*2)=75 (7 rows, 1 on each end)
75-(7*1*2)=61  (7 rows, 1 on each end)

Maybe you need coffee?  Wink

But if youre only decreasing one on each end where does the *2 come from?

ooooh. I read it as the last part of each row being the end. Makes much more sense now duh. I dont feel too bad though, as I asked three other knitters who also couldnt figure it out before I came here. He he

HOLY CRAP!!! I spelled the topic wrong too. No more early morning sneaky posting for me!!!!
Sigh

That's ok, happens to the best of us.  
I was sewing last night and I cut out a pattern piece the wrong way up (so that the wrong side of the fabric was out).  Twice.  And didn't notice until I had already hemmed it and was about to sew it on to the next piece.  Both times.
