Hi - I’ve just joined - very glad to find such a helpful site! I am experienced knitter but there are still plenty of things I can learn, eg all the different techniques for casting on.
I am using an online pattern for a baby cardigan and came across wording that is not clear. It’s for the left front section, part of shaping the neck.
I have decreased to 17 stitches, now the instruction is:
‘Work 4 rows and dec 1 st at neck edge in next row and foll RS row. (15 sts).’
Do I do the decreases AT THE SAME TIME AS working these 4 rows? Or do I work 4 rows AND THEN decrease?
There’s a similar instruction for the right front. When I have 15 stitches:
‘Work 5 rows and dec 1 st at neck edge in next and every foll 4th row. (13 sts).’
As above, do I decrease DURING or AFTER working the 5 rows?
Hoping you can help!
