Lions Brand Waterfall Pattern k2b question
I am a beginner knitter and I am using the following pattern:
Cast on 58 sts
Row 1 (ws) K1b, p1b *k1b, k1, p1b, p1* Rep from * to * to last 4 sts, K1b, k1, p1b, k1b.
Row 2 (rs) K1b, *k1b, k1, p1b, p1,* rep from * to * to last 5 sts, k1b, k1, p1b, k2b,
My question is if I k2b on row 2 then it decreases. So the next row is only 57 sts, and so on... Why is my blanket going to continue to get smaller? What am I doing wrong or is this the correct pattern? Should I be adding one back somewhere. It is from the Lions Brand web site and is the pattern that came on the back of the yarn I purchased to make the blanket.
Thank you for the help!!!
