Best Decrease?
I am wondering what the best decrease would be for the baby caftan I am working on. The instructions read:
(RS) At each neck edge, BO 1 sts once, then dec 1 st every other row 5 times- 11 rem each shoulder.
So, because there is a right and wrong side, I don't want to mess this up. I looked over all the decreases on the site, but they are going the opposite direction I need, so I have a hard time visualizing which one I should use.

Thanks so much for all your help

The easiest is the k2tog (knit two together), but if you don't want a right slanting decrease then maybe ssk. That is a left slanting decrease.

Most patterns tell you which one they suggest, too.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
