K2, k2 together around?

Ok…I’m just too brain dead, so can someone please think for me and help…lol
Does this mean that I

  1. knit 2 stitches and then do k2 tog for the rest of the round? so I would knit 2, k2tog, k2tog,k2tog around the whole mitten.
    [B]or am I supposed to [/B]
  2. k2, k2 tog and repeat that around?(knit 2, knit 2tog, k2, knit 2 together, knit 2, knit 2 together…
    I’m voting for #1…but I have a tad of doubt.

Thank you for helping me think…I really need to get to bed earlier!

Is it the end of the mitten so you’d be decreasing? I read it as knit two, knit two together, k2, k2tog, etc all the way around. It kind of depends on how it’s written. If it’s written just like you’ve posted then I’d go with what I said. Do you have a link to the pattern? That’s always helpful when asking questions.

thank you for the suggestion on posting. I’m on the top of the mitten and it’s the first decrease row. It’s written:
“1st dec rnd - k 2, k 2 tog around. k 2 rnds even.” If it helps there are three dec rnds and you end up with about 9 sts out of 40.
It’s a pattern I bought, the mittens and mitt mate on Ravelry.

Okay, written that way it’s k2, k2tog, k2, k2tog, etc around. You’re decreasing similarly to what you sometimes do on the top of a hat.

And btw…that was a perfect way to post a bit of a pattern. Enough to understand w/o affecting copyright. :thumbsup:
