Need help understanding a pattern.
I am knitting a dress for my daughter that has a wave pattern to it. I have to do some decreases every 10 rows and I am not sure where to do them. I am going to copy the parts of the pattern pertaining to this problem and put it out there to see if there is anyone that can help me.
"Keep pattern repeats centered on garment, working in pattern throughout."
Then under set up pattern, the part for the size I am doing says,
"K1, p1, place marker, work Row 1 of Wave pat to last 2 sts, place marker, end p1, k1."
So, throughout I have been keeping the first two and the last two stitches seperate from the wave pattern.
For the decreases it says,
"Maintaining pat, beg on next row, dec 1 st at each edge [every 10th row]12 times--91 sts."
My question is do I decrease at the very end of the row, eliminating those two stitches on either end or do I decrease at the end of the wave pattern part and keep the first and final two stitches in tact?
I am not very experienced and any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
