I just fould this site and I already found it very useful. I do have a question, I am have trouble understanding what this pattern is asking me to do. I am working on a sweater and the pattern had me dec 1 st at the side edge on the following 8th row, (which I did) then inc 1 st at side edge on the next and foll 6 th row. I am confused because I just dec 1st why would I add it on again on the following row?
Thanks for your help!!!
That is a good question. Maybe it nips in a bit at the waist -- actually, probably not since it'd have to be a very little bit if it's only one stitch at each edge. Others will probably have better explanations.
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
