So I'm knitting up a lovely phildar cardigan from one of the tendances books and although confused at first about how to read the patterns, all the q&a on here and around on blogs has helped me out a great deal- thanks everyone!!!
It's going fine but I'd just find some advice helpful. I'm up to a sentence that says "2 sts from each edge of foll 8th rows, sgl dec 3 times".
Now I know that it's asking me to dec 1 st 3x on each edge of the row... but it's mentioned nothing about spreading the decs along the row evenly, and when Phildar want you to do that, they write it like that! So it's basically telling me to dec 3 sts at each end, all in one row... Here's the question:
isn't that a little odd, shaping wise I mean? 3 decs on each side... that's going to drastically pinch in that one row don't you think? I'll knit it like that and see how it looks but what would anyone else do? Maybe someone who has more experience knitting phildar could just say- "oh that seems totally normal!" and then I'd stop worrying!
