New Question - Pattern row after decreasing
I'm having a little trouble adjusting the pattern lines after binding off at the start of a row. If someone could work with me through one, I think I could manage the rest.

I have to bind off 3 sts at the start of 2 rows. The first row is all knit after binding off, so that's no problem. The next row will have 3 less at both the beginning and end and it goes like this:

Row 10: p1, keeping yarn at front sl 1 purlwise, yb *k6, yf, sl 2 purlwise, yb; rep from * to last 8 sts, k6, yf, sl 1 purlwise, p1

I think it would be:

k5, yf, sl 2 purlwise, yb *k6, yf, sl 2 purlwise, yb; rep from * to last 5 sts, k5

Does that look right? Oh, the pattern is for The Gertrude Sweater.
