Please help. Struggling with a pattern.
Hi all I'd be really grateful if anybody can help me with a bit of difficulty I'm having? Probably something really easy but I'm a bit baffled by it.
So I have 24st at the beginning and the pattern is for a baby's cardigan and the basic pattern is:
Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: p1, k1 until the end of the row
Row 4: p1, k1b, until the last two sts which are p1, k1
That's the pattern the throughout but the issue I'm having is when it comes to shaping.
The pattern requires I work 25 rows. Decreasing a st at the beg or end (depending on the side) on every following fourth row (every knit row). My problem is that when I've decreased a st I don't know if I should be still following the pattern or adjusting it because I now have less stitches. I've tried it both ways and both seem to go a bit funny but I'm not sure if I'm doing something really daft?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
