I have been knitting sporadically ever since I was a young child and this is my first time following a pattern to make something!
I tried to decipher the lingo by myself but I am having trouble with one area.
I am working on a small cardigan and the instructions I am on right now are…
With smaller needles, cast on 98 sts.
Ribbing: Row 1 (RS): K2, * p2, k2, rep from * across.
Row 2: P2, * k2, p2, rep from * across. Rep these 2 rows until piece measures 2” from beg, end on RS.
Change to larger straight needles and p the next row, [B]decreasing 26 sts across – 72 sts.[/B] Work even in St st until piece measures 3" from beg, end on WS.
I am not sure what the decreasing should look like. I know how to decrease, but am I supposed to do it all at once, or one or two stitches per row until I have 76 left? Help and thanks!
