I'll be knitting in the round. I'd like the decrease "swirl" to look even and I'm thinking it will throw it off if I put two extra decreases in. Will they be very obvious? Should I put them both in the first round?
I'm knitting this for a gift, but I think her head size would be average. I have a small head so I can't go by that. I'm getting about 4 stitches per inch in the scarf. I checked two patterns done in stockinette. For a women's size, one called for 80 stitches and the other 77, so I would like to go with 80+2 for my pattern so I can follow my decrease instructions (another pattern) for a multiple of 8. Then I wonder if 72+2 would be better or too small. I hope this isn't as clear as mud!
