BO for armholes

I have started on the back and will be BO for the armholes. The following I do not understand that is on the pattern:


BO for armhole on each side for 2,1,1,1,1 (2,1,1,1,1) 2,2,1,1,1 (3,2,1,1,1) 4,3,2,2,1,1 st


I am knitting for 2 years old, so the first bracket numbers apply to me. How and when do I start to BO. I don’t understand the (2,1,1,1,1).



Please could you kindly advise this knitting dummy!!



Looking forward to hearing from you very soon.

YOUR ANSWER


It is hard to say definitely without seeing the rest of your pattern.

But I would assume that this instruction is telling you that you cast or bind off 2 stitches at the armhole edge on the first row and a single stitch on the following 4 rows.

But as I said without seeing how the pattern has been written, it is hard to be 100% certain of the meaning.
