So I am working on a dog sweater and one of the last steps is to add ribbing to the back edge. I’ve done this before (and asked about it before) but the thread is no longer available and the situation is a bit different. I have to pick up and knit along the back edge. Some areas are straightforward but some sections have decreases all along the edge (every other row began and ended in a decrease). They are either K2tog or sl1 k1 psso. So I’m not clear on where I should be inserting my needle to pick up stitches. There is a normal looking stitch with two legs followed by what looks like a knot (the decrease). Should I be picking up a stitch at these decreases? And if so where exactly? Should I be trying to stick my needle into the knot somewhere or should I go in under the knot?
I have pictures but it’s really hard to see what it’s like through photos alone.
