Confused about decreases 'every other row' at armhole
Hi! Well, here we go, my first big challenge! I haven't knitted a sweater for years and forgot how to read the pattern, when it comes to decreasing for armholes. It's a vest actually not a sweater. I suppose this is simple but I'm just not sure. I'm confused, if it says dec 1 st each side every other row.... here's the exact words:
At the beg of next 2 rows bind off 5(6,6,7,7) sts, then dec 1 st each side every other row 3(3,4,4,5) times.
I got the 5 sts bound off, but then to decease 1 st each side, am I binding off one stitch each time at the beginning of the row and at the end of that same row? To make the armhole? Or knitting 2 tog... Should the decreases be in the same row in other words. Oh geez I'm hopeless.... I can't picture it.
Can show you the pattern but it's pretty simple probably!?
Ha! Thanks Ingrid (how ya been!) Geez, I think I did the back of vest the wrong way. (I'm on the front now) Maybe not, but for some reason I thought I should bind off instead of dec. Drat. It looks ok though.
We'll seeeee. thanks bunches!
