Has anyone knitted the Lelah top? (http://knittingforboozehags.com/freebirds/lelah-top)I'm so confused!! (but what's new?!) Anyway, I think I'm just making it harder than it really is...but in the beginning of the pattern, it says Cast on 154 for Large, 143 for Medium
For L do 8 repeats of rows 1-6, for M do 7.
Fishtail lace pattern
1: *P1, K1, YO, K2, sl 1, K2tog, psso, K2, YO, K1, P1*.
2: *P1, K9, P1.*
3: *P1, K2, YO, K1, sl 1, K2tog, psso, K1, YO, K2, P1*.
4: Rep Row 2.
5: *P1, K3, YO, sl 1, K2tog, psso, YO, K3, P1*.
6: Rep Row 2.

But at the end of the pattern, it says
32″ bust: Cast on 130 stitches. Decrease to 119 st. decrease row: k9, k2tog, *(k9, k2tog)* 10 times, k9
34″ bust: Cast on 138 stitches. Decrease to 127 st. decrease row: k8, k2tog, *(k10, k2tog)* 10 times, k8
36″ bust: Cast on 147 stitches. Decrease to 136 st. decrease row: k8, k2tog, *(k11, k2tog)* 10 times, k7
38″ bust: Cast on 156 stitches. Decrease to 144 st. decrease row: k6, k2tog, *(k11, k2tog)* 11 times, k5
40″ bust: cast on 164 stitches. Decrease to 153 st. decrease row: k11, k2tog, *(k12, k2tog)* 10 times, k11

So which cast on am I suppose to do?! :thinking:

It looks like that second set of directions was added to make the pattern more specific to bust size. I'd go with those rather than the M and L pattern.
