THere was a thread on here about mitered squares but now I can’t find it. Whatever. So my question is, on the Mason Dixon mitered square you gotta go back and forth between ssk x2 and then a k2tog and k2tog x2 and an ssk which I don’t get. Why not just do one or the other the whole time? So then either way yer decresing by 3 each knit row. But the decreases are not even. For instance it’s not decrease 3 stitches in the middle of the row–> every row–> in a row. Someimtes you knit 27 then decrease. THen the next row is not decrease 26, maybe its decrease 24. Why can’t you just decrease 3 stitches every row? I want it to be easy and mindless llike this pattern
where there are only 2 decreases and the stitch number matches on either side of the decrease. But this pattern doesn’t come out in a nice square (Although I purled on one side instead of knit every row in gaarter. What can I say, I’m a snob. I like stockinette) It makes a diamond.
So ow do you make a nice perfect square with a nice mindless easy decrease in stockinette? Do I CO an even or odd number of stitches? Or do I have to do like Mason-Dixon and skip stitches and keep track and alla that.
