Hi I am new to this forum (and a returning knitter after many years). I am knitting the above pattern but I am unsure as to what I am doing with the back.
The pattern reads:
Change to 6 mm needles and work in st-st (throughout) cont until Back measures 33cm, ending with a ws row
Cast off 6 sts at beg of next row
Next row K2, s1 K1 psso, knit to last 4 sts, K2tog, K2.
The pattern then starts decreasing 1 stitch at each end of the row, then alternate rows.
My question is, why am I decreasing 6 stiches at one end of the row, but not the other. Surely the back should be symmetrical?
Any advice would be gratefully received.
