Decreasing at both edges of the same row

-

Often used for raglan sleeves or to highlight an armhole.

These are the decreases where you can see the sloping edges and are normally worked on the right side of the garment.

The decreases are always worked at a distance of x number of stitches from the edge. Here is an example of decreasing at a dis-tance of 1 stitch in from the edge.

At the beginning of the row, always with the right side of work facing you; K1, slip stitch onto RH needle, K1, PSSO.

At the end of the row, always with the right side of work facing you, (the instructio­ns indicate to decrease x number of sts in from the edge, and following an example of 1 st), work to the last 3 stitches, K2 tog, K1.
