What is the meaning of 'Dec 1 st at each end of next 3 rows'?
Hello, I need help with a baby slipover sweater.
I am now on 53 stiches and stuck with this : dec 1 st at each end of next 3 rows
I am working on a pattern :
1. K3, *Tw2R, K2; rep * to last st, K1
3. K1, *Tw2L, P2; rep * to last 3 sts , Tw2L, K1
I know I have to decrease 1 stitch, just I am so confused that should I dec 1 st by doing k2tog at last 2 stitches or do the k2tog at beginning of two stitches?Answer
"Dec 1 st at each end of next 3 rows" means to decrease one stitch at both ends of a row for 3 consecutive rows.
You can do k2tog at the beginning and at the end of a row for the right side. And do p2tog at the beginning and the end of a row for the wrong side. So, you do this for 3 consecutive rows with 6 sts decrease total.
I hope this help.
Have fun with your project and thank you for stopping by.
