decreasing
Hoping for help please......I am ready to decrease my sweater for the armholes. The pattern is K2, P4 across the row. Supposed to decrease 3 at beg and end of row. Would I continue with the pattern when decreasing? Tried this but both ends don't look the same. ???

chaseb, uou'd probably get more answers if you post this in the How To forum.

Do you k2 p4 across on all rows, or just the next one? BO 3 sts at the beg of the row, then start with the 5th st of the pattern (because the 4th st was used in the BO). Then BO 3 at the beginning of the next row and start that row with the 5th st. If it's a rib pattern, knit all the stitches however they look on the row you're on. If it's not, we need more more information. Please post that in its own thread on the other forum.

It is all ribbing rows at this point. 2nd row of decreasing will be P2,
K4 and so on. I understand what you are saying above. I will proceed as you suggested - makes sense. thank you very much. Will ask ?'s in the "How to Forum" in future. good advice.

Hello and thanks for your site, I have been knitting since I was a child, that over 40 years of knitting (not saying how far over 40)
I been teaching knitting off and on for 20 years. I design most of my work, even if I start with a pattern I just can't help myself I have to change it and make it my own. I just went back to work in a yarn store part time and teaching the knitting classes. Looking forward to getting to know ya'll and helping you with your problems as well as learning from you.

Hello! I'm so glad I found this website! I just started knitting and I am having a difficult time finding instructions that are clear to me. I have learned how to cast on and I am trying to move ahead to make Row 1, but every time I try, the yarn is almost to tight to continue pulling through to the right needle. Help??

Hi Rachael. Your cast on may be too tight - try not pulling on the yarn when you cast on, or hold both needles together for the cast on, then pull one out to work the first row.
