okay, i don't need help on the flowers.  i'm not far enough to be stumped on that yet.
i was making the neckwarmer and the edges looked very weird.  one side was perfectly fine but the other side kept twisting ans getting a little knotty if that makes sense.  you know when you slipp knitwise instead of purlwise? or vice versa, that's what happens.  But i just try to follow the directions so i don't really know.  and when it says to slip1 then rib 1 X 1, do you start with a knit or purl stitch?  cause that may be my problem.
i appreciate any advice you have for me.  thanks a bunch!

Okay, I don't have the book in front of me, but here's what I think the deal is:

To make a nice braid-looking edge,
Row 1: sl 1st stitch k-wise, make sure to knit the last stitch
Row 2: sl 1st stitch p-wise, make sure to purl the last stitch

I am pretty sure that once you have slipped the first stitch you start w/ a k for the 1x1 rib.

Hope I could be of help!

my rule of thumb is to slip in the manner that the next stitch will be worked. so i always sl 1 knitwise, k1 OR sl 1 purlwise, p1, but never sl 1 knitwise, p1. it works for me, but my superstition may not play out in all situations.

I wrote the pattern that way because I'm a bit obsessive - jillz skipped the ribbing in the increases and worked it as stockinette, saving herself a headache.  You can see the photo in this thread, and it looks great!
