View Full Version : I Need Help With Patterns Decease

04-22-2011, 06:34 PM

The one I'm using it at the very bottom. It looks like a large white cable pattern, but it is worked with yo & dec sts instead of moving stitches around.

Can someone help me with this pattern? The WS rows (even number rows) are worked as well. Iím having trouble with the decease. On the RS rows I use a SKP and I canít figure out which dec to use on the WS side that will continue the flow of the cables curve when viewed from the RS. I havenít been able to fine information on the site. Or Iíve over looked it.

I'm not good with charts, but I had this pattern bookmarked and the cable is basically the same. Don't know if it'll help, but it's worth a shot.

I think purl 2 tog through the back loop will do what you want and continue the line of decreases on the back side. There's a video for it at the top of the page under Free Videos, Glossary, p2tog tbl. It really is a very pretty pattern that you are doing.

A SSP will work for the other side of a skp - slip 2 sts knitwise, move them back to the L needle and purl tog tbl.
