I am knitting the leg of a teddy bear just knitted 46 Rows st st each row 30 st
Pattern then says:
Cast off 3st each end. Next 2 rows. 24st
Dec 1st at start of next 4 rows
Dec 1st at each end of next 4 rows. 12st
Next row (k2 tog) to end. 6 st
I am a beginner I have cast off 3 st at the beginning of the row and knitted to the last 3 but how do I cast off these st and is it me or do the numbers not add up as if I have 30 st and cast off 12 st over 2 rows I would not be left with 24 st.
Please help any advice is greatly appreciated.
