looking at just the right hand portion; columns 7 to 15 counting from the right.
row one, 3, 11,13,15,17,19,21,23 are all:
YO, (double decrease) YO, purl 3, YO, (double decrease), YO = 9 stitches
Row 5 and 9 are:
purl one, YO, double decrease, YO, p1, YO, double decrease, yo, = 9 stitches.
row 7 should be:
p1, ( *** ), p1 = where ( *** ) is the crossover
but is charted as p1, ( *** ), yo, p1
If your stitch order for those seven stitchs is:
after the crossover they will be:
O ,(c), O, d, O, (g), O
stitches dcba are held forward
stitches gfe decrease to form (g)
purl stitch d
stitches cba decrease to form (c)
Does that make sense?
