You do a knit round after each round of increase?  Yea, I think I read that wrong, I was doing all the increases, then one knit round then all the decreases and a knit round.

That's probably it.  I did switch to a non-metal needle too, I think that might help

Yea one round after each increase or decrease.  That should turn out much better now Smiley

I made that same mistake with my very first puff. I don;t know how I missed it Shocked It took about an hour of wading through ravelry help posts(I'm just bad at using their forums) to figure it out.

started my first puff tonight - took me ages to work out the decreases - why didn't she just say 'k 2 tog through back of loops'? once I'd worked out thats what she meant I was ok.

mini_mum - do you mean the part that is ssk?  That step is confusing to me and it seems to look messy when I do it

that is exactly the bit I mean! seemed to take *forever* for me to work it out, going step by step through the instructions, and then I realised it was knit through the backs of the loops (if it isn't - it's near as d4nm it and works for me!!)

Another round would certainly be swell!  I am definitely up for dyeing more yarns to send out!
