Hi! I am knitting this cardigan linked below and am currently on the “Left Front- shape front slope” sections. It reads: keeping pattern correct, dec 1 stitch at the end of next and 2 following 4th rows, then on 5 following 6th rows. Continue straight until Left Front matches Back to start of shoulder shaping, ending with a ws row.
The 8 row repeating pattern is as follows:
1st row. K1, * p1, k1, rep from * to last st, p1.
2nd row. * K1, p1, rep from *
3rd row. p1, * k3, p1, rep from * to last 3 sts, k3.
4th row. * P3, k1, rep from * to last 0[3:3:2:2] sts, p0[3:3:2:2].
5th and 6th rows. As 1st and 2nd rows.
7th row. k1, * k1, p1, k2, rep from * to last 3 sts, k1, p1, k1.
8th row. * P1, k1, p2, rep from *
Firstly, how should I do the decreases? Just by k2tog? And secondly, how do I keep the pattern correct after? Would I begin row 5 after the first decrease with a K1 as usual, or now with a P1?
Any help massively appreciated!!!
