A little Clarification

I've gotten a few questions about the Mitered Square pattern regarding the stitch count, so I thought I would do a little update just to clear things up.

The pattern reads as such:

Row 1: Knit 34, ssk, place marker, k2tog, k34
Row 2: Purl all stitches
Row 3: Knit to two stitches before marker, ssk, slip marker, k2tog, k to end of row
Row 4: Knit all stitches

Please note that Row 1 says to k34 sts on each side of the marker and decrease.  Obviously you won't be able to do this every time you knit a row 1 since you'll be decreasing  on each odd row.  To clear up the instructions, you will be decreasing as the pattern has been established in row 3 on every odd row.  Look at it like this:  Row 3, Row 2, Row 3, Row 4.  Hope this clears a bit of confusion up.

Hope you are enjoying this month's swatches! Happy Knitting!
