Help with Armhole Shaping...
Iím making a pullover and I have a question about the decreases for the armholes at the last part. Iím doing the first numbers inside the parentheses (I made them bold)

Keeping in patt, dec 1 st each end of needle on next RS row, then every 4th row 6 (2,0,0) times, then every other row 21 (31, 34, 30) times, then every row 0 (0,6,16) times Ė 42 (46, 48, 52) sts rem; armhole measures 10 (10.5, 11, 11.5)Ē. BO all sts in patt on next RS row, working any required cable crossings as you BO.

I have two questions:
1. I have to do decreases 1st from the edge, and the edge is k1, p1, k1, p2. Should I just do a k2tog decrease? Or is there a good one that works with something like this?

2. Since I donít have to decrease every row for my size (the last decreases), am I supposed to just do the "every other row 31 times" decreases and then bind off? Or am I supposed to do the "every other row" decreases then continue in the pattern w/o decreases?

Sorry this is so long! :yadda: I feel like when I get there Iíll know how it is supposed to be (which is what happens with everything else) but Iím worrying extra because its going to be a gift and I donít want to screw up!

Thanks for any help anyone has!

Where you do the decreases is up to you. You can just k2tog and the seam will cover it, or work it in a stitch.

After you finish the decreases for your size, you should have 46 stitches left, and if it measures the right length, then bind off.
