I’m knitting a top-down sweater and want to do waist shaping. My round starts in the right hand side, working the front, then the back. I know where to place my markers, but I’m confused about left-leaning vs right-leaning decreases and increases.
If I’m knitting top-down, does that mean that a left-leaning decrease becomes a right-leaning decrease due to the fact that my sweater is “growing” upside down from the needles?
And if that’s correct, do I use ssk, k2tog, ssk, k2tog for the decreases, then m1l, m1r, m1l m1r for the increases?
Trying my best to understand knitting because I hate blindly following instructions with no insight or understanding as to what I’m doing. Thanks to everyone for helping me with this goal!
