So I'm working on the back piece of a UK vintage dress pattern and am at the point where I shape the armholes but can't understand what I'm supposed to do. It's a straight piece with 80 stitches and it says
Slip stitch across 6 tr, 3 ch = 1 tr, work to last 5 tr, turn
(Can't figure out if I'm supposed to repeat the slip stitches at the end)
Slip stitch across next 3 stitches, 3 ch = 1 tr, work at last 2 stitches, turn (2 stitches decreased at end of each row)
Can someone put this in US terms that will make sense to me? Thanks!
