View Full Version : How would you tackle the last set of decreases?

I am knitting the following pattern:


I am on the last set of decreases. Can you tell if these are taken from the body or the arm side? I think I am doing it wrong. I still have a marker, not a marked st. Should I take my markers off and use my knit st between the two purls as my marked st?

I had to look at lots of ravelry notes with little life rings to get this far! I am not frogging this project.

The markers were to have been placed in the 4 stitches that are the raglan 'seam' lines, not on the needle, because you do a double dec and the marked stitch would be the middle of the 3 sts. Now on the last round of decs, you just do single ones instead of double. Whichever stitch forms the line of the dbl decs to now would be the 'marked' stitch, so knit until 2 sts before it, p1, k2tog, p1, work to 1 st before the next one, P1, SSK, P1, and repeat that (2 sts before, p1 dec p, work to 1 st before the st, p, dec p.) And repeat the round until you have the right number of sts left for your size.

I am going to try this again tonight.
