Hi all - I am knitting my first sweater and have reached the point where I have to decrease for the armholes. I am knitting a 6 row repeating cable pattern and the directions tell me to decrease 5 at the beginning of the next two rows and then one after that. My confusion comes from the fact that I am going to have to do this while following the pattern instructions. Any input would be appreciated! Also, I have read where some people suggest completing the first 1-2 stitches of the row before starting to decrease for a better finished edge. What do you think of that?
