help with "decrease 2 stitches every 5 rounds"
Okay, I'm working on a sweater. I've picked up the sleeve stitches on DPNs and where it said to place a marker would be right in the armpit. But I didn't acutally put a marker because that's where the stitches are divided between 2 of the needles at the armpit.

Anyway, now I'm to decrease 2 stitches every 5 rounds. So I would knit five rounds, then k2tog twice - once on each of the armpit needles?

Does that sound right?

Yes, but you might want to leave a stitch on the end of each needle and dec before one and after the other.

This creates sort of a false seam, and avoids a lumpy seam.

I'd work to the last 3 stitches, ssk, k2, k2tog.

ah-ha! okay. Thanks.

Sorry, I'm a newbie so I still need clarification. Since it's decrease every 5th row, would I actually start this at the end of row4 and beginning of row 5?

Or would it be end of row 5, beginning of row 6?

Or on row 5 you could start k1, k2tog, work to last 3 stitches of row 3, ssk, k1.
