Sleeve Decreases

Hey all you shruggers!! I have a question.

I was wondering how you did the decreases for the sleeve. Did you do k2tog or ssk? Did you do them at the beginning of the round or the end of the round? Did you do them 1-2 stitches before/after the marker?

I know, so many possibilities. Just wanted to get some advice.

I did the decreases right after the marker on stitch one as either a k2tog or p2tog, depending on which row I was on. Based on the fact that you’re wearing the garment inside-out, I didn’t really see the decreases by going that route. Plus, by doing the decrease right at the beginning of the round change, it “hides” in with the pattern shift anyway. It did change my A/B color start point on the twist rows, but you can’t really tell on the finished sleeve either.

Sorry for not getting back to you earlier--I spaced that!
