I'm having trouble with instructions and feel sure someone can clarify for me. The pattern reads
Dec 1 st each side every 10th row 4 times - 58 (62, 66, 70) sts.
Here's what I think I'm supposed to do: Decrease 1 stitch on each side on row 10, row 20, row 30 and row 40 to equal the "4 times." I have 78 stitches on needles now, so if I do this I'll end up with 70 stitches. Does this sound right?
Also, what do you all think is the better way to decrease - k2tog or ssk? I'm doing a sweater if it matters.
