Help with reading ROWAN pattern

Posted by mbarstow (My Page) on

This is my first time working with a Rowan pattern and I am really stuck.
The pattern --
Row 1: K2tog, K to last 2 sts, K2tog (85 sts)
Row 2: P1 *yo, P2, bring last 2 sts over the last 2 sts and off the needle, rep from * to last 0 sts
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: P1, *P2, yo, P2, rep from * to last 4 sts, P4
These 4 rows form patt and start shaping.
The following is what does not make any sense to me.
Keeping patt correct, dec 1 st at each end of 3rd and every foll 6th row to 77 sts,
then on every foll 4th row to 67 sts, then on foll 7 alt rows, then on foll 3 rows, ending with a WS row, 47 sts.

Is Row 3 the Knit row and I dec at the beginning and end of this row? Which row is the 6th row?
Is it Row 2 in the pattern, which is made up of the first 4 rows? That's a row that begins with
a Perl -- this is my confusion.
Greatly appreciate any assistance.

My best guess...

Yes, row 3 is the Knit row. You decrease at each end of that row once.

Then you begin to count all over again and the 6th row will be six rows up from that, which would be your 9th worked row, then the 15th row, etc, until you have 77 sts.

Then the decreases happen sooner.

I think you are confusing pattern rows (there are only 4) with the actual worked rows. Make sense?

This is exactly what is written?
I've never seen the abbreviation "foll" in directions !
If it were me, I'd contact ROWAN or whoever created the pattern and ask them to clarify.
I have found that there is always someone there for pattern support and they can give you the best help.
Look on your pattern for contact info....or just go on line and contact Rowan.
