Shaping armholes
Okay...time to shape the armholes for the sweater I'm making. I have 121 stitches to start.

Here's what the directions say:
BO 6 sts at beg of next 2 rows. Dec 1 st each side of next row; then every other row 5 times total -- 99 sts.

Here's my interpretation:
Row 1: BO 6 sts, continue in K5, P1 ribbing to match the rest of the pattern. (115 sts).
Row 2: BO 6 sts, continue in K5, P1 ribbing to match the rest of the pattern. (109 sts).
Row 3: Decrease 1 stitch at beginning and end of row. (107 sts).
Row 4: Work even.
Row 5: Decrease 1 stitch at beginning and end of row. (105 sts).
Row 6: Work even.
Row 7: Decrease 1 stitch at beginning and end of row. (103 sts).
Row 8: Work even.
Row 9: Decrease 1 stitch at beginning and end of row. (101sts).
Row 10: Work even.
Row 11: Decrease 1 stitch at beginning and end of row. (99sts).
Row 12: Work even.


Is that correct? Also, what kind of decrease am I supposed to use? K2tog?

Thanks in advance for your help!
