Hi. I would really appreciate help with this basic waffle knit pattern. It’s from Berroco Mayer free pattern. It is a repeat of four rows:
Row 1 (ws) p1, *k1, p1, rep from * across
Row 2: k1, bring yarn to front under needle, sl 1 purlwise, bring yarn to back over needle, k1, rep from
Row 3: p1, *k1 together with the yarn passed over needle, p1, rep from * across
Row 4: knit
My problem comes when I have to decrease 1 stitch each side every RS row 7 times. That means (I think) that I would decrease at the beginning and end of rows 2 and 4. I’m just not sure how to do it and maintain the pattern. For example if I decrease the first knit st on row 2 how do I do that and have a yarn forward to maintain the pattern. Thanks so much for any assistance. I’m at the armholes and the sweater looks great and I’d like to finish it and keep the look of the waffle stitch.
