Staying in patt while decreasing
I'm having difficulty understanding the pattern I am trying to create. I'm at the stage where I need to start decreasing and the pattern is confusing me.
Beg front slope shaping -
Dec 1 st purlways at each end of the next row and then the following alternate row twice.
Firstly would it be every alt purl row or just every alt row?
The pattern doesn't say what to do on the right side. Before decreasing i would -
k1,inc next st, k4, sl1, k1, psso, k2tog, k4, *inc in each of next two sts, k4, sl1,k1, psso, k2tog, k4* to last 2 st icl in next st, k1
Because i no longer have enough st for the k1, inc, k4, sl1, k1, psso, k2. do I just knit the first sts until I can start the pattern correctly?
