I just started working on my first bag tonight (conviently I was about to start it when the Nov. KAL was put up:) ) and I just want to check something before I screw it up:P
Just for information purposes, I'm working on the gusset & handle.
The pattern reads:
Using 4 mm needles, cast on 18 stitches. Work in stocking stitch until piece measures 12 cm from beginning. Continuing in st st, dec one stitch at each end of next row and every 8th row until 10 stitches remain.
So after the 12cms, I would k 16 and k stitches 17 and 18 tog? (Obviously that's just using k2tog, I've never done any other dec's). Then the dec would land on a purl row correct? :
Row 2: P
Row 3: K
Row 4: P
Row 5: K
Row 6: P
Row 7: K
Row 8: P 15 sts p2tog stitches 16, 17?
One other part I'm a little unsure of, is do you dec on the end of each first row of the rep? Or was that just the first time?
If you don't think k2tog or p2tog is well suited for this, I'm open to suggestions, I'm sure you all understand it better than I do:) Thank ya!
