decreasing at each end of needle
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Yvonne,

The decreases should be done on both ends on the same row. Each decrease row will lost 2 sts. The decreases should be like this;

Decrease at each end every row until there are 42 sts left on the needle. Then decrease 1 st at each end every other row until there are 16 sts left on the needle.

Thanks for the question and visit.
Have fun knitting!
