lost in translation...

Even though I am working from the English translation of my Phildar pattern, I find it necessary to take out pen and paper to work out the instructions. The sleeve shaping is fairly simple, but written really badly. The sleeves also have neck shaping at the top. And those instructions are even worse:

"Dec one st at beg of foll 2 alt rows AT THE SAME TIME casting off at beg of next and every foll alt row 3st (1 time) and 4st (2 times) then cast off rem 2 st."

To add insult to injury, the instructions for the left sleeve include my favorite saying, "work to match right sleeve, reversing neck shaping." It's a good thing that I like a challenge!
