My general mood these days is definitely affecting my knitting. I really want to warm up my girls' feetsies with these this Christmas. But they're on my nerves! It is supposed to be a simple pattern that even kids can do. Sigh.
Could someone explain these decrease rows to me. I get the decreases; it's the knitting in between.
First DEC. ROW: Work ribbing for 7 (7-9) sts, * slip, k and psso, k1, k2 tog. *, work 3 (5-7) sts ribbing, repeat between *'s once, finish row in ribbing; 23 (25-31) sts.
NEXT ROW: Work 7 (7-9) sts ribbing, p3, work 3 (5-7) sts ribbing, p3, finish row.
2nd DEC ROW: Work 6 (6-8) sts, * k2 tog., k1, slip, k and psso *, work 1 (3-5) sts, repeat between *'s once, finish row; 19 (21-27) sts.
So, first of all I have several rows of ribbing in the toe:
ROW 2: K1, *p1, k1; repeat from * to end.
Repeat these 2 rows of ribbing for 1 1/2 (2-2) ins., end on wrong sideRepeat these 2 rows of ribbing for 1 1/2 (2-2) ins., end on wrong side.
I want to make sure about this because my brain is just fried. Which is the wrong side? Exactly which row do I knit last before starting the decrease. I need it spelled out for me.
Then, can someone please just spell out the actual stitches to make in those decrease rows? I know what the slip, k and psso is. Just tell me like in that first dec. row do I start with p1 or k1, and then when it says work 3 sts ribbing, do I start with k1 or p1, and when it says finish row in ribbing do I start with k1 or p1? And the same for the 2nd decrease row. I despise ribbing.
Help make a tired mama feel good about herself again! :-)
