Well, I feel like a dolt for not being able to grasp this myself... but I'm having problems getting the lace pattern for the Razor cami. I've never worked in the round before, and I'm really more of a visual learner than from words.

I understand how to do the slip-knit2tog-pass slipped st over, but it makes me think I have to add those 2 decreased stitches back somewhere, to get a tube that's not smaller at the top than bottom. Does that make sense?

The directions read;
Rnd1 - (k1, yo, k4, sl-k2tog-psso, k4, yo) to last st, k1
Rnd2 - k around
(Repeat these two rows til work measures 16")

I feel totally dumb for not being able to understand this... I've seen all of the seperate techiniques (yo & sl-k2tog-psso), but I don't understand them together. Can anybody help me out?

The two yarn overs replace the two stitches you are decreasing.

Don't feel bad about asking questions - that is one of the reasons we all come here and one day you will help so

One more question...

Where it says ... k4, yo) to last st, k1

Does that mean to k4, yo and then k1? Or k3, yo, and k1?
The pattern has 12 sts, and if I k4, yo (at the end,) I don't have 1 st left to knit... I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong, but I'm really confused. I've got about an inch worth of wonkiness, and I'm afraid I'll want to frog it.... but I want to get it figured out, first! Help!

I don't remember ending with a k1 when I did this pattern... just with a yo...

Well then, that simplifies it! That's what I thought it should logically end at (to repeat the pattern across the "seam".)

I'm off to frog an inch, at least I didn't keep going, right?!?!? LOL  Cheesy

Thanks so much for the fast answer!
