I have a very similar question, and I’m adding here so that we don’t duplicate posts…
Here’s my pattern instructions:
CO 71 stitches
Keeping 1 st at each side in St st and remaining sts in Lace Patt, work even for 1/2" --> no problems up to here
The lace patt is:
Purl all WS rows
Row 2 (RS) is yo, k2tog repeated across
Row 4 (RS) is SSK, yo repeated across
I’m having trouble with decreasing :?? :
To dec when working Lace Pat, [color=darkred]eliminate the last yo of RS rows. Dec 1 st at end on next row[/color]
Rep this dec every RS row 30 times more, then every other RS row 15 times ; end on WS after piece mesasures 12"…then you work even
What I don’t understand about the part in [color=darkred]bold red [/color]is this…
Do I dec 1 st at the end of the WS row? Is that what is meant by the next row? Or do they mean dec one st at the end of the next RS row???
The Left Front image of the pattern shows 1 straight edge and 1 edge decreasing sharply until just before the shoulder. This makes me think that I should not do any decreasing on the wrong side to keep that edge straight.
