I am taking a break from knitting clothes for my gorgeous 2 yr old granddaughter and am treating myself to a knitted openwork shrug/coverup in a lovely cotton blend pale sage green yarn.
I am knitting the Round Neck Cardigan on King Cole’s 4456 pattern (King Cole Vogue yarn) – it is an easy ‘crochet-look’ pattern and is knitting up really well.
Pattern row is: K2, yfwd, yrn, P2 tog, rep from * to last 2 sts, K2. This is then just repeated throughout.
BUT I have now come to ‘Shape ‘ and am stuck on how to do the decrease and yet retain this pattern at the same time…
Pattern reads ‘Work 5 rows, dec 1 st at each end of every row’. But if I decrease a stitch at each end over the next 5 rows isn’t it going to change the pattern, especially the ‘K2’ bit at each end? How do I do this? Help!
