Then k = 5 for precessing stripes and k = 3 for progressing stripes. In either case, we are to knit two stitches per color. As we will see later, any positive multiple of nh + 1 (respectively nh − 1) would work for k, as well, and generally k will need to be at least 50 stitches for any practical knitting purpose.
Beginning with color 3 and working in color sequence, decrease 15 stitches by working (k3 k2tog) 15 times over one round, leaving 16 stitches of each color (60 stitches left in a round).
