Decreases for ruffle don't make scarf narrower
I'm working on a scarf that has a ruffle on the end. I started with 109 stitches and knitted the decrease row ( Sl1, K2tog, psso). I ended up with 37 stitches as the pattern said. The problem is that the width is still quite large. The finished width is supposed to be 6.5 inches and after the decrease row it is more like 11. I have completed several rows of the main body pattern and the width is still too wide. Am I doing something wrong? I would think that decreasing by so many stitches would decrease the width a lot, too.
