I am making a tank top and there is a motif of hearts around the bottom of the tank.
Row 15 of the motif is as follows:
k2 yo sl1 k2tog psso yo k3 yo dec2 yo k2
I am not sure how to do the dec2 - any help would be appreciated.
I checked the key in the book and dec2 is not listed.

sl1 k2tog psso
This is your dec 2. I guess they were too lazy to write it out over and over. :!!!:

I think they meant k3tog, it would lean toward the sl 1, k2tog, psso dec.

Thanks Sue -
I believe the you are right.
The pattern is actually a chart so I do not think that the dec2 and the other decrease are the same.
I just tried it and it looks perfect with the knit 3 together.

You weren't incorrect Ingrid... I just thought it made sense in the lace pattern to do matching decs. :shrug:

Thanks again Sue - I got all the rows for the heart motif done - I just went to get my hair cut and colored and finished that section while the color was processing. The hearts look great thanks to you!
Here is a link to what I am making if you want to see:
