I have a project I have my eye on, and at one point I have to decrease “30 sts evenly” from 146sts. I would think it’s as simple as dividing (146/30) which comes to 4.8. Is that all there is to it? I would imagine that with an answer like 4.8 I would round down to 4 and go from there? Anything else I should take into account?
It seems to me that a long time ago, before I started knitting “in earnest”, I had tried a similar decrease and had ended up with a quarter of the sts left after all the decreases were done, which is why I’m asking this now rather than when I’m in the middle of the pattern.
