Hi..this pattern reads:
Work 12 rows dec 1 st st each end of every row. You will now have 54 sts. (I'm starting off with 78 sts)
Work 10 rows dec 1 st st each end of 1st and every following alternate row. You will now have 44 sts on needle. Work rows dec 1 st st each end of every row. You will now have 16 sts on needle.
Okay...my question is, when you dec, which method should I use? K2tog/P2tog?
Now..when I'm dec at the end of every row, am I dec the beginning of knit row then knit the whole knit row to end then turn and dec on purl side at beginning? When I did this, my stitch count by the end of 12 rows don't come out. What am I doing wrong?
Also, dec on alternate rows, am I not dec on them already? I mean I'm not going to knit and purl 2 whole rows and not do any decreases am I? If so, my sleeve would be way longer than I need. What am I not understanding? Please help.
