I'm relatively new to knitting - I've done scarves & hats up till now which were a breeze in comparison. I'm doing an easy knit Sirdar pattern 9613 for the button up cardigan.
My question is I've got to the decrease point in the sleeve. It says:
Cast off 6 sts at the beginning of the next 2 rows.
Work 16 rows dec 1 st at each end of next & every foll 4th row.
With it saying CAST OFF 6 sts - do I knit 2 together or cast off like you do when you bind off at the end of a project altogether. My novice instinct thinks I knit 2 tog. I had a look on the net & decreases seemed to be k2tog.
I find it a bit misleading with it using the 2 terms for shaping the raglan. In one sentence it says CAST OFF & in the next sentence it says DECREASE.
I would have thought DECREASE would be knit2tog. Is that right? I'm CONFUSED.:shrug:
Hope someone can help. :knitting:
