question about diagonal garter stitch baby blanket pattern
I am halfway through with my first diagonal garter stitch baby blanket and am suddenly puzzled. I have made numerous dishclothes and washclothes in the diagonal garter stitch, and when I decrease it always goes something like: K2, YO, K2tog, K to the end. (With the blanket, I am doing a border of K3). Well, I'm sort of following a pattern in a baby blanket book for this blanket, and at the decrease, it instead goes like this: K3, YO, K2tog, K until there are 4 sts left, K2tog, K2. Every other pattern I see for this kind of blanket does not include that K2tog at the end of the row. I am not sure what to do - follow the pattern, or go with what has worked before? What will that additional K2tog at the end of each row do? Won't it decrease faster? :thinking:
