Book "Fitted Knits" working on textured tunic, need help with understanding the directions on the sleeves?
I am working on the sleeves right now..
Transfer 36 held sts of one sleeve to needle.do not join. Knit 1 RS row.
Work 12 rows in Box Stitch, Dec 1 st at beg of each row -- 24 sts.
work even in box stitch for 14 more rows, ending with WS row.
ok so heres my problem..
I trasfered the sts, knitted 1 RS row.
when i start to work the box stitch, dec 1 st at beg of each row...
i end up with odd numbered sts.
Is it supposed to be like that?
cuz box stitch is k2, p2 for 2 rounds, then p2,k2 for 2 rounds..
so how can i work the box stitch when there are odd numbers??
maybe i am not decreasing the right way...
can someone please explain all of this to me.
