Artlady - I really love the seed stitch cuffs better than the original. When you do the decreases is there a reason why you only do them in one place over a few rows, instead of on one row and evenly spaced out. never done a cuff before so am just trying to understand how it works.
I thought putting the decreases on each side of the seamline would hide them best. And remember, you have to maintain the seed st sequencing
, so you have to knock out two stitches side-by-side
anyways. It's not like decreasing in plain st st. Otherwise, you'd have a P1P1 when you removed the K1 by itself, or vice versa...a K1K1 if you removed just a P1.
But, you could certainly work your two decreases side by side at different locations around the circumference of the cuff. I'd start out at the seamline, but if I didn't like it, I'd try dispersing the decrease sequences around the cuff. Good thought.
I suggested working a 'decrease row' every other row
, just so that it is more gradual, and not too radical. The 'resting row' gives the 'decrease row' time to settle in and feel comfortable. A lot patterns use decrease rows no more frequently than EOR.
But this is only a suggestion. There are prolly other ways that are just as good, But it's what I'd try first. If I liked the results, I do it for the second cuff, too. If not, I'd frog it and try something else. Tinker, tinker. That's me. The tinker thinker!
