I am knitting up the ‘Cotton Candy Dress’ designed by Celeste Pinheiro. The next row in the pattern says:
Dec 39 sts evenly across 82 sts.
There are 121 stitches in total on my needle.
So…how do I evenly dec 39 sts over the ‘middle’ 82 sts?
I figure the middle because the dec are for the waiste of the dress.
I thought about something like (it was around 6:30am this morning and I am not a morning persion - this may explain why it is baffling me): k20, (k2tog, k1) 27 times, k20
Is this proper? Is there a better way???
