Help reading a pattern in row 7
My directions are as follows:
Row 5: k4, *k2, yo, k1, yo, ssk, Dec, k2tog, [yo, k1] twice; rep from * to last 5 sts, k5.

Row 7: k4, *k5, yo, Dec, yo, k4; rep from * to last 5 sts, k5.

In row 7 the Dec doesn't specify if I should just knit 2 tog or ssk, k2tog. Could you interpret the row for me? Thanks for your help

Since row 5 also has Dec along with ssk and k2tog, maybe it's another type of decrease like a double decrease. Looking at the repeat in row 5 there's 4 YOs, and with 2 single decs, the other would be a double dec so you offset the YOs. Row 7 has 2 yo and no other decs, so it should be a double one. Look to see if the pattern eplains it because it could be sl 1, k2tog, psso, sl 2, k1 psso, k3tog or sssk.

Double Decrease
Thanks again Sue - I checked the pattern again for directions and found: Dec - Double decrease: Slip next 2 stiches knitwise at the same time (as if to k2tog), to right needle, k1 from left needle, then slip both slipped sts over k1 at the same time.

Now I am wondering in Row 5 if I knitted that row wrong --- it has a Dec in the instructions.

Yeah, if you didn't do a double dec in row 5, you'll have to redo it. Count the sts in the repeat, you should have 12 sts in it.

I lived in Lansing a few years a while back. Not a big Spartans fan, hated game days, too much traffic to go into EL.
