   Grin !!! I solved the problem! The fix requires an easy trick: on the left end of the decrease row, at the last 7 stitches: K2 Together, put that stitch back on left needle, then slip next stitch over the K2 stitch, move new stitch over to right needle, continue as pattern.  This causes the slant to be in opposite positions!
I will post a progress photo soon.

This sweater is really pretty easy.  Wink
My height adjustments are requiring an extra 2.5 inches length on the sleeves and the sides seams.
When I get to the neckline I will re-write the pattern for a deep turtleneck, based on some patterns I found on-line.
