I’m knitting a Fair Isle knitting pattern, and am a little confused about the pattern for the back. I have attached the relevant section of the pattern. I have got 145 sts on the needle at the moment, and it’s all just straight, no shaping.
I’m confused, as it says to decrease 1 st at the end of every (following) alternate row, but won’t that make it asymmetric? It’s the back of the cardigan, so shouldn’t it be symmetric, i.e. decrease by the same amount on each side of the piece?
