Anyone knit Interweave's Tangled Yoke Cardigan?
Hi..I have a question on this pattern. I want to make sure I'm understanding it before I find out later it was wrong. I've goggled this question, searched everywhere to see if ANYONE else encountered this. Many people have knitted this so.....

Just starting the garter ribbing. I did the first decrease row. This is where I'm lost. I have 226 stitches on my needle set-up and worked like this:
(WS) P1, (p2.k2) 13 times (for my size)
then p2,
(k1 for seam stitch)
Then second set of sts, (k2,p2) 28 times
(k1 for seam stitch)
the last set of stitches are (p2, k2) 13 times, p3.

(RS) Knit, but make the seam sts rev stockinette sts.

I did this for required number of times. Now I'm to the decrease row which is SSK 2 sts before the seam sts. Purl seam st. k2tog on the 2 sts on other side of seam st. I did this all the way across leaving me 4 sts less.

Now...when I do the RS row, I'm fine I just knit. The problem lies when I do the WS row again. The pattern doesn't tell me to compensate for the 4 less sts.
Do I just continue knitting knowing I'm 4 sts less and just do a p1 instead of p2 on each side of seam sts? I just found this odd that no one else is having this problem. ( must be me?!) LOL!
Am I losing it, or is this how patterns are written usually and I'm just noticing it?

THanks for any help

Yes, just do whatever the stitch would have been before the decrease, whether it's one knit or one purl. Just keep the seam stitch in place, and the decreases will kind of blend into it.

Thanks so much! I thought that's what I would do, but I've gone with my assumptions before. All it did was cause me a lot of frogging. lol!
