oh, now i'm definitely casting this on!
just one query: do you do the decrease, then the first stitch of the decrease rows of the chart, or is the decrease the first stitch? if that makes even a bit of sense...
yours look great btw.
you do a double decrease: slip1, knit 2 tog, pass slipped stitch over. .. so the slip stitch is the last stitch from the past row (does that makes sense?) then knit together the first two stitches of the decrease row and pass that slipped stitch over.
and snarkymarcy sorry to hear about your nose! but glad the bruise tam makes you smile - my sister is a medical illustrator so she sees everything in a blood and guts manners - heehee
