OK, I am working on my first fair isle project (so far so good!), but now I have a problem. The pattern has a 4-row repeat, but the pattern is telling me that after a series of decreases I should have 50 stitches on my needle before I begin working the chart. 50 is so not evenly divisible by 4.
Should I go ahead and knit the pattern with 50 stitches, or is it wrong and I should decrease one more time to 48? Are there cases where fair isle works repeats like this work over the wrong number of stitches? I'm so confused.
