I am a new knitter and am currently making a soaker for my son.
The pattern I have is in stocking stitch but I would like to use rib as it will be thicker/more dense that way.. so am I correct in "assuming" that I can decrease by using SSK (and K2tog at the other end) then on the next row, k1, ssp, then the next k1, p1, ssk etc so that I have edging of 1x1 rib to decrease? and then increase back to 2x2?
(does that even make sense - apologies if not!)
