I have started the pattern To Dye For but I am having a problem with the pattern for the sleeves.

CO 41 sts. work even in St st for 4 rows. Dec 1 each side next RS row; *confusing here*  every 6th row 4 times; then every 4th row 2 times-- 27 sts. work even until piece measures 16".

so does this mean...
row 1-4 st st. (p,k,p,k)  row 5: p decrease 1 each side(beg and end of row?)   row 6:k 7:p 8:k 9:p 10:k 11: p dec 1 each side 12:k 13:p 14:k 15:p 16:k 17:p dec 1 each side 18: k 19:p 20:k 21:p 22:k 23:p dec 1 each side 24: k 25: p 26:k 27: p 28:k 29:p dec 1 each side 30: k 31:p 32:k 33:p dec 1 each side 34:k 35:p 36:k 37:p dec 1 each side   then work st st until it reaches 16"Huh?
it seems like it would be right but then I have confused myself so much over this.  Please help.   Huh

Hi there,
I will try to explain it for you, it does seem a little confusing, but here goes.
Knit your 4 rows in stocking stitch, then your next RS row dec 1 st either side, then stocking stitch another 6 rows and dec 1st either side, then stocking stitch another 6 rows and decrease 1st either side again. Then you knit 6 more dec and another 6 dec. So you have knitted 4 blocks of 6 rows. Its the same with the next decrease. When I knitted a row I just marked a line on a piece of paper, I found this easier to understand as I could see how many rows I was knitting.
I really hope this has made it a bit more clearer for you.
Please leave me a message if you need some more help.

I love too knit!

awesome! that's what i started to do just last night, and I finally was right!. And after doing all of the decreases it doesn't quite measure 16" so I keep working even, as in just st st until i reach the 16"correct?  It took me a couple times to write it out but thank you! I can finally finish! I  hope

Great, I'm glad you understand it a bit better, yes carry on in stocking st until piece measures 16'.
All the best

I love too knit!
