So my roomate and I just started knitting the frecklegirl thong pattern found here
and I'm almost done with the back but I'm a bit confused with the directions.
Row 5: k3, k2tog, k until last 5, ssk, k3
Roq 6: k3, p2tog, p until last 5, p2tog, k3
repeat rows 5 & 6 until 5 sts remain
Now my problem is, if I have to knit 3 at the beginning and the end of each row then I'll end up with at least 6, not 5 AND how do I work the decreases when there's not enough stitches left to do both of them?
